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 RMIT team is focused on the following research themes:

This Centre has developed technologies for manipulating matter and light at the level of individual atoms and photons, with the highest fidelity, longest coherence time qubits in the solid state, the world’s longest-lived quantum memory, and the ability to run small-scale algorithms on photonic qubits. The new technology is expected to provide a strategic advantage in a world where information and information security are of paramount importance.
