Launched in 2014, the York Centre for Quantum Technologies (YCQT) is a cross-departmental, interdisciplinary initiative aimed at further developing the University’s substantial expertise into quantum research. Based on an initial partnership between the departments of Physics, Maths and Computer Science, and with the intent to expand to include other departments, the Centre aims to foster new collaborations across all areas of quantum theory, and in particular their applications to emerging quantum technologies.
The research focus of the affiliated staff is wide-ranging, covering various application areas: quantum communications, sensing, imaging and computing technologies and quantum thermodynamics (with potential applications to satellite technology). At the more fundamental level, research covers many areas of quantum mechanics, from quantum cryptography and quantum networks to quantum information and processing, including entanglement, teleportation and state reconstruction. Study of physical implementations of these phenomena encompasses light and matter: quantum optics, spins and charges in condensed matter systems and nanomechanical devices.
Founded by the current Director, Professor Tim Spiller, who also heads the recently launched Quantum Communications Hub, the Centre further aims to support cross-institutional collaborations through a visitors programme and research seminar series, while it also facilitates training of the next generation of quantum researchers via funding of Research Fellowships and PhD studentships in this field.
