QuantIC

QuantiC is the UK Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Enhanced Imaging and brings together more than 120 full time researchers from the Universities of Glasgow, Bristol, Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt, Warwick, Oxford and Strathclyde and over 30 industry partners in a collaborative venture to revolutionise imaging across industrial, scientific and consumer markets.

Established in December 2014, we are one of four quantum technology hubs that are part of the UK Government’s £270m National Quantum Technology Programme announced in November 2014 and are funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) set up to exploit the potential of quantum science and develop a range of emerging technologies with the potential to benefit the UK.

Our vision is to pioneer a family of multidimensional cameras operating across a range of wavelengths, time- scales, length-scales, creating a new industrial landscape for imaging systems and their applications in the UK. Collaboration is at the centre of everything and we have a £4M Partnership Resource Fund designed to accelerate technology uptake by industry by supporting industry-led projects and two-way staff secondments. We also have a dedicated innovation space which has been funded by the Scottish Funding Council where companies can work alongside our researchers to develop new technology prototypes.

QuantIC Studentship Opportunities
QuantIC has a fully funded industrial studentship programme which is designed to develop both academic and technical excellence in candidates and lay the foundation for the next generation of quantum engineers. Students can be based at any of the QuantIC partner universities and will work in collaboration with industry to deliver innovative technological solutions in quantum imaging to the market. Industrial partners that have offered studentship projects include Amazon, M Squared Lasers, QinetiQ and ST Microelctronics.

Past studentship projects have included:

  • Development of innovative superconducting electronics for multiplexing quantum sensors arrays
  • A single-chip squeezed light source for interferometers
  • Inferential methods for image reconstruction from sparse photon data

A current studentship project we have available:

  • Quantum strategies for super-resolution microscopy https://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=69492


If you are a physicist with an interest in technology, an engineer with an entrepreneurial flare, or a theorist with an interest in applied problems, apply for the QuantIC Studentship and help us shape the future of imaging technology.

Entry Requirements
Places will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applicants must have a 1st class or 2.1 degree at MPhys or MEng level (or equivalent) from a computing, mathematical, physical sciences or engineering programme. Exceptional candidates with BSc or BEng qualifications will also be considered. To submit an application with your CV or to make informal enquiries, please contact Catherine Macneil at info@quantic.ac.uk.
