About Quantum Science at the University of Sydney

Our quantum science research group is focussed on addressing the most challenging problems in quantum science, and on leveraging these insights to advance the development of quantum technologies. We have world-leading expertise in the areas of quantum computing, quantum control, and the quantum-classical interface. Our activities span theory and experiment, range from fundamental quantum information science through technology development, and incorporate atomic, optical and condensed matter systems. 

Research in quantum science forms a core focus of the University of Sydney Nano Institute , a university-wide initiative to discover and harness new science at the nanoscale. Along with our central focus on world-class academic research, we have a complementary interest in engaging with key industrial partners and start-up companies. Our researchers are co-located with Microsoft Quantum Sydney , a partnership between the University and Microsoft Quantum Research to pursue quantum and cryogenic computing. In addition, Q-CTRL , a quantum-technology spinoff company funded by venture capital, has established a resident base of expertise in quantum control engineering and professional software development.

Our researchers in quantum science are active in the  ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems , and participate in several international research programs in Quantum Information Science sponsored by the US Army Research Office, IARPA, and other domestic and international activities.
