Quantum Simulation

Developing quantum systems and control techniques to enable innovative computing approaches.

Associate Professor Michael J. Biercuk’s group’s research using trapped atomic ions is seeking to harness and exploit quantum mechanical phenomena as resources, powering a new generation of quantum technologies. The group have had extraordinary successes – from quantum control to quantum metrology.

“The facilities we've designed and built in the Sydney Nanoscience Hub over the past five years are truly among the most advanced in the world. The extraordinary level of controls we've realised in the building are the fundamental enablers allowing us to make serious advances in our work,” said Associate Professor Biercuk.
