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. This year we have been very busy, presenting our exhibits at 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.
Communicating with Light
See how to carry information with light, try to eavesdrop on your friends and learn why quantum is better.
Single Photon Challenge
Learn why quantum physics is so challenging and check how many photons can you see with your eye and compete with your friends.
Quantum Interference of Photons
The core of the future quantum computer, check yourself how photons behave in the quantum world.

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!
