Frontiers of Quantum Technology

The exploration of quantum phenomena at the scale of single atoms and photons has recently led to extraordinary applications of quantum entanglement such as quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography, and quantum computing. The degree of control exerted over these systems is reflected in the term 'quantum technology', describing both experimental and theoretical developments in this area. This course is for you if you have an interest in the wonders of quantum physics, and a desire to exploit its full power. At Sussex, we cover a wide range of research at the frontiers of quantum technology: Ion-trap quantum processors; ion-photon interfaces for the projected quantum internet; quantum simulators; superconducting quantum circuits; devices for quantum-enhanced metrology. The long-term applications include improved sensors, powerful quantum simulations and the long-distance distribution of quantum information. This course can be taken in an experimental or theoretical mode and has a strong research component embedded in one of our renowned research groups. On this course, you develop unique experimental or theoretical techniques, enabling you to pursue further studies or a career in industry.
