Compound Semiconductor Quantum Technology
This project will deliver transformative, practical quantum technologies by combining ideas from quantum physics with advanced processing technology from the compound semiconductor industry.
Quantum technologies are the most innovative area in photonics, as stated in several recent UK Government Office of Science reports.
The unique selling point of quantum technology is that it can deliver measurement precision, computing power and communication security beyond what is possible within existing classical limits. By combining ideas from quantum physics with advanced processing technology from the compound semiconductor industry this project will deliver transformative, practical quantum technologies.
At Cardiff we are setting up a new state-of-the-art laboratory space to make practical demonstrations of quantum devices. We will work on compound semiconductor materials produced and processed by the new facilities, enabling close integration of the design, production and demonstration of new technology in one location.
This project is led by Dr Anthony Bennett who has wide experience of semiconductor nano-optics, quantum physics and photonics.
