The University of Cambridge is to form one third of a new £6m research collaboration looking at quantum physics.
The sum, one of several new science and innovation awards, has been given to three UK universities by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College London will share expertise from their respective Physics departments to examine quantum coherence, promising to improve understanding not just of the quantum world, but to develop fundamental new technologies in nanoscience.
The money will enable the University to appoint two new specialists in ultracold atoms and another in semiconductor optics. It is also investing an additional £3m of its own money in new equipment and the refurbishment of existing facilities within its Cavendish Laboratory to help further improve its capacity for experimental research in coherent quantum systems.
