ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology

This Centre aims to implement quantum processors able to run error corrected algorithms and transfer information across networks with absolute security.

Australian researchers have established global leadership in quantum information, an innovative technology which could transform all industries dependent on computational power. 

Our role

The Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) leads the world in the race to build a quantum computer in silicon and undertakes world-class research in optical quantum computing and quantum information technologies. The centre is headquartered at UNSW and comprises more than 200 researchers from nine of Australia’s leading research institutions. Together with over 25 formal international partners CQC2T represents one of the world’s largest teams working to create a universal quantum computer and secure communication systems.
