Inside the clean room in the Quantum Technology Centre

Quantum Technology Centre

Our unique expertise and world-class facilities allow quantum technologies to be used in new products and processes to revolutionise electronics, medicine, energy and computing.

Quantum Technology is a term to describe electronic materials and devices where effects caused by the quantum nature of matter become significant in their design and performance.

Lancaster Quantum Technology Centre (QTC) provides a focus for future quantum technologies. We are based in Lancaster University’s Physics Department, a working community of 145 researchers and 80 students.

Our unique expertise and multi-million-pound facilities enable the translation of quantum technologies into new products and processes to revolutionise the electronics, medicine, energy and computing industries.
