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.
Bringing Science into the Marketplace
We provide a state-of-the-art capability enabling quantum technologies to be used in new products and processes. We want to bring economic benefit to the region and accelerate the pull-through of science into the marketplace.
The Faculty of Science and Technology has created a world-class facility which consists of:
- New class 100 and class 1000 clean rooms
- State-of-the-art measurement equipment
- Dedicated technical support
The LQTC establishes a significant new technology presence in the Northwest.
