EQUS is contributing to the development of a quantum industry for Australia 

Quantum technologies have the potential to be highly disruptive in many sectors, significantly altering industrial operation and competition. These sectors include infotech, telecommunications, engineering, transport, navigation, finance, defence and aerospace

Quantum technologies use the properties of quantum mechanics for practical applications. These technologies can be found in our everyday lives, from smart phones and cars to industrial applications in manufacturing, engineering and imaging. This technology only captures a small fraction of the potential of quantum physics.

New developments in research and engineering mean a new generation of technologies are being created. These technologies have potential uses in a range of fields and will impact across business and society as a whole.

Major funding support

Australian Research Council

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS) acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to Elders past and present.
