A perspective of UK Quantum Technology prepared by and for the UK Quantum Technology Community
The roadmap for quantum technologies in the UK produces a snapshot of the current quantum technologies landscape.
The National Quantum Technologies Strategy outlines how quantum technologies represent a billion-pound opportunity for the UK economy.
Guidance for academics
Miniature satellites developed in the UK are promising to provide ultra-secure communications using quantum technology: tapping out secret keys encoded in single photons sent down from orbit.
A new scanner based on quantum sensors can detect the magnetic fields generated when neurons fire. It will give doctors a new view of the brain at work, to aid treatment of disorders including epilepsy and dementia.
A handy prototype device promises unhackable personal security for banking and shopping.
By using lasers to create precisely engineered crystal defects, a group at the universities of Oxford and Warwick is learning to turn diamonds into the building blocks of a quantum computer.
A UK collaboration is using light to link small quantum processors, an ion-based approach that could lead to large, powerful quantum computers.
A UK collaboration is learning to see deep underground, using quantum technology to detect minuscule variations in the force of gravity. Among other things this could make roadworks faster and more efficient by revealing pipes and hidden hazards.
A quantum camera being developed in the UK can see objects hidden behind walls or other barriers. It could be used to aid rescuers and improve the safety of self-driving cars.
This brochure provides information on the range of investments being made by the partners of the National Quantum Technologies Programme to deliver the National Strategy for Quantum Technologies. It also includes case studies to demonstrate the impact of some of these investments.
Examples of progress towards enabling a strong foundation of capability in the UK, one of the five areas for further action identified in the National Quantum Technologies Strategy.
Examples of progress towards creating the right social and regulatory context, one of the five areas for further action identified in the National Quantum Technologies Strategy.
Examples of progress towards growing a skilled workforce, one of the five areas for further action identified in the National Quantum Technologies Strategy.
Examples of progress towards stimulating application and market opportunities, one of the five areas for further action identified in the National Quantum Technologies Strategy.
