QSCITECH investigates and utilises more complex aspects of quantum science to probe the quantum nature of reality.
The Macquarie University Research Centre in Quantum Science and Technology (QSCITECH), seeks to explore and harness the fascinating properties of the quantum world. Modern technologies make use of many basic aspects of quantum science, e.g. the laser, semiconductors etc, and developments based on these basic aspects have fundamentally transformed our society in a myriad of ways.
In QSCITECH we aim to focus on investigating and utilizing more complex aspects of quantum science, such as quantum entanglement, superposition and quantum interference, to probe the quantum nature of reality in a deeper fashion and to begin to engineer the quantum world to provide new types of functions which surpass, and may indeed, be impossible, using the classical laws of science. These new functions include quantum sensors, quantum simulations and quantum computers.
