To manipulate the quantum world, we must first understand the fundamental principles of complex multicomponent quantum devices and the instrumentation that measures and governs their operation.
This program develops tools and design approaches that enable complex quantum machines to be pieced together from disparate components. It aims to pioneer a new generation of instruments tailored to the demanding requirements of quantum science, including precision clocks, oscillators and time-bases, and high-speed cryogenic electronics.
In doing this, our researchers will also apply the world-class advances, made through the first iteration of the centre (2011-2017), to a regime of large-scale quantum machines.
Within the quantum engines and instruments program, our research projects include:
