Three new collaborations involving NQIT researchers and new NQIT spin-out companies have won nearly £2m from Innovate UK as part of their latest round of funding for the commercialisation of quantum technologies. The three new projects will explore exciting new applications of quantum technologies: - “Nanoparticle and chemical sensors using optical microcavities” - “Q-DOS light: quantum key distribution for drones with optimal size, weight and power” - “Quantum enhanced sensing of trace compounds in sealed containers”

The first two years have seen the consortium focus its efforts towards refining the overall system architecture
and design to deliver the Q20:20 quantum computer demonstrator. We have made significant advances in
both system and engineering design, and identified the most effective components for assembling the system.
