About this event

Quantum technology (QT) is a new area of research and innovation in which quantum physics is harnessed to produce systems with performance which is otherwise unachievable with classical physics. These areas include quantum metrology and sensing, secure communication and quantum computing.

A common underlying technology is optics and photonics, however the requirements for these devices are extremely challenging. This talk will give a brief overview of quantum technologies and what they promise to achieve. This will include details about the NQIT QT hub, the largest EPSRC funded project to date. This is followed by a discussion of the unique engineering challenges and finally the routes we are investigating to address them.

Dr James Gates, Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton

James Gates is a Senior Research Fellow working in area of photonics at the University of Southampton. James gained an MPhys degree from the University of Southampton in 1999, and completed a PhD in Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) in 2003. He continued researching in the field of nanophotonics in the Physics department at the University of Southampton before returning to the ORC in 2006. Over the past 10 years James has worked in the area of optical engineering publishing over 60 peer reviewed journal articles and 140 conference publications in the fields of integrated optics, optical sensing and quantum technology.
