Quantum technologies theory

Honours in Physics projects are available to study with the Quantum Technologies Theory Group which specialise in applying quantum mechanics to emerging and future technologies.

Applications of quantum mechanics have ranged from electronics (transistors: without which there would be no modern electronics, such as mobile phones, laptops etc.), to medicine (both imaging (MRI and PET scans), and treatment (such as laser surgery, and cancer treatment- including recent advances in proton therapy), to civilian infrastructure (nuclear power and Maglev trains).

Recent advances in generating entangled photons, cold-atom interferometry and quantum sensing have the potential to develop further life-changing technologies.
