About the YCQT

Launched in 2014, the York Centre for Quantum Technologies is a cross-departmental, interdisciplinary initiative aimed at further developing the University’s substantial expertise into quantum research. Based on an initial partnership between the departments of Physics, Maths and Computer Science, and with the intent to expand to include other departments, the Centre aims to foster new collaborations across all areas of quantum theory, and in particular their applications to emerging quantum technologies.

The research focus of the affiliated staff is wide-ranging, covering various application areas: quantum communications, sensing, imaging and computing technologies and quantum thermodynamics (with potential applications to satellite technology).
