About the course

The so-called “2nd Quantum Revolution” promises novel, revolutionary approaches to sensing, metrology, computation, cryptography and communication by not only utilising but tailoring quantum dynamics. The importance is recognised by all major global funders who have set up dedicated programmes to support this rapidly evolving field and there is a fast industrial uptake.

The UK has invested £1 billion since 2014 in the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme in a collaboration between industry, academia and government. The Department of Physics is involved in all four UK Quantum Hubs and numerous UKRI and Innovate UK grants. As a result, we cover a wide range of quantum technologies based on cold atoms, photonic devices and semiconductor structures.
