Australian centre of excellence in quantum opens at UNSW

QxBranch is proud to be an industry partner of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) at UNSW Sydney which was officially launched this week to continue its development of quantum computing technology.

QxBranch joins 25 other partners from around the world to provide industry support to the research centre.

The centre, led by 2018 Australian of the Year, Professor Michelle Simmons, is a global leader in quantum computing research developing quantum processes in silicon and optical platforms that will be linked over secure communication networks. The centre was officially launched by Mr Jason Falinski MP, pictured with Professor Michelle Simmons in the photo above.

QxBranch supports this research through the provision of software, advice, and collaborative events such as hackathons that help build the link between academia and industry.

Dr Ray O. Johnson, Chair of the QxBranch board, spoke at the centre opening and remarked on QxBranch’s long standing relationship with CQC2T. “When we first started on a journey into quantum computing seven years ago, we could not have written a better script for the way the industry has developed and the significant advancements that have resulted from this Centre. Close collaboration between industry and research will accelerate the development of quantum computing to commercial reality,” said Dr Johnson.
