Secure communication is emerging as a significant challenge for our hyper-connected data-dependent society. The answer may lie in a clever combination of quantum and classical cryptographic techniques.
Read Professor Ian Walmsley and Dr Joshua Nunn's Editorial in Physical Review Applied on "Building Quantum Networks" here.
On July 26 we held an evening event at the Oxford Martin School for local businesses and members of the public to find out more about our work on quantum computers and how they might affect business in the future.
You may have heard the word “quantum” bandied around a lot. But what does it mean? In this animation we take a look at how the photon – the quantum particle of light – is being harnessed to help create new technologies like quantum computers.
On January 15 2016 we held the second of our twice-yearly User Forums – a half-day event bringing together existing and potential industrial partners with NQIT quantum researchers.
The world of quantum mechanics is weird. Objects that are far apart can influence each other in what Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance”, and cats can potentially be dead and alive at the same time.
Quantum UK 2015 Conference - Bringing Together Academia, Government and Industry to examine the future of Quantum Technology.
Prof Ian Walmsley, Director of NQIT, describes the role of optics and photonics in the UK’s £270 million Quantum Technologies Programme.
Following an investment of almost £38 million from the EPSRC, the NQIT Hub, a consortium of universities and industrial partners led by Oxford, aims to build the most advanced quantum computer in the world.
