Centre for Engineered Quantum Systems

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS) is inventing Australia’s quantum future. Our Centre harnesses the underlying rules of the universe to build sophisticated quantum machines for practical applications. We pioneer the design of quantum materials, quantum engines, and quantum imaging systems to solve the most challenging research problems at the interface of fundamental quantum physics and engineering, and work with partners in industry to translate our research discoveries into practical technologies to the benefit of Australia’s society and economy. Our capacity building programs are training the next generation of scientists, technologists and entrepreneurs in cutting-edge fundamental research, bench-to-product technology innovation, and ultimately deliver major impacts on Australia’s high-tech economy.

EQUS’ quantum technologies span critical sectors of Australian society including health, METS, communications, space, environment, and security. We move our cutting edge research beyond the lab and towards practical prototypes and real-world applications. Our researchers work across 5 university nodes which includes The University of Queensland, The University of Sydney, Macquarie University, The University of Western Australia and The Australian National University. We collaborate with Australian research organisations, government, SMEs, and leading tech companies, and instil a new generation of STEM researchers with a culture of discovery, innovation, and translation.
