Quantum Light (On a Chip)
Welcome to the QL webpage. ‘Quantum Light’ is an exhibit, which we created to tell the story of how we can use light for communication today, but most importantly how light can be used to build future quantum computing devices — this topic is at the core of our research. Over the last few years we have been very busy, presenting our exhibits at the EPSRC Physical Sciences Impact Showcase, Discovery Night, the Exploring STEM for Girls event and returning to the Cheltenham Science Festival. We have previously been selected for the Summer Science Exhibition 2015 at the Royal Society, the Cheltenham Science Festival 2017 and also attended previous editions of Discovery Night and Researcher’s Nights in Sheffield.

Quantum Speed Test
Quantum computers massively outperform conventional computers when finding the prime factors of large numbers. We simulate the time it takes to find the prime factors of large numbers for quantum and conventional computers. Try our Quantum Speed Test to check yourself how much faster a quantum computer will be!
