Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies


The Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies is focused on the exploitation and development of disruptive quantum technologies.

The Centre hosts seven research groups covering the broad spectrum of quantum technologies as well as hosting a number of associate member groups that share significant overlap with our mission.

Our research groups are involved in the UK Quantum Technology Hub on Networked Quantum Information Technologies and the UK Quantum Technology Hub for Sensors and Metrology as well as DSTL initiatives, Centres for Doctoral Training and numerous national and international collaborations.

The Centre is integrated within the UK National Quantum Technology Programme.

The Centre’s five experimental research groups are led by:

Professor Winfried Hensinger and Doctor Sebastian Weidt (Quantum Computing, Quantum Simulation and Quantum Sensing), Professor Matthias Keller (Ion Trap Cavity-QED and Molecular Physics), Professor Peter Kruger and Doctor Fedja Orucevic (Quantum Systems and Devices), Doctor Alessia Pasquazi and Professor Marco Peccianti (Emergent Photonics (EPic) Laboratory), and Doctor Jose Verdu (Geonium chip).

The Centre also hosts ground-breaking theory groups led by:

Professor Jacob Dunningham (Quantum metrology, Bose-Einstein condensates and Entanglement) and Professor Barry Garraway (Trapped Ultracold Atoms and Theoretical Quantum Optics).

The Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies features numerous state-of-the-art quantum technology laboratories along with key infrastructure.

In addition to the high-quality research environment, training plays an integral role and the centre hosts the pioneering MSc in Frontiers of Quantum Technology as well as carrying out specialized quantum technology training for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers.
