Led by the University of Birmingham, the UK Quantum Technology Hub Sensors and Timing develops cold atom science into a range of practical sensors for measuring basic quantities such as gravity, magnetic field, and time. The team is investigating how they can be used to address challenging problems such as seeing underground or imaging brain activity, both of which have significant economic and societal impact.
The development of quantum technology will have an undeniably transformative impact on everyday life, not to mention across huge industry sectors such as transport, civil engineering, communications, computing and even in space. Quantum technology will help to make the world a safer, faster and more productive place to live in.
