The Department of Quantum Science spans the spectrum of research, from fundamental investigations into quantum mechanics and gravity through to commercialization of advanced technology.
We host a node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology, and the Centre for Gravitational Physics, which is pioneering gravitational wave astronomy within the international LIGO consortium. The Department has broad expertise in precision measurement and sensing, ultra-cold-atom physics, and space science. Commercial enterprises that have spun out of the Department are Quintessence and Liquid Instruments.
More information about each of the Department’s research groups is on the pages linked to on the left.
