The NPL Quantum Programme supports many aspects of government policy.
NPL is collaborating with UK universities and other institutes to explore how quantum technologies and materials can create new paradigms for classical computing, greatly reducing the power needs and power dissipation of data centres and servers.
Quantum based sensors for gas detection can identify emissions and leaks of greenhouse gases, enabling the location and mitigation of sources. NPL has a quantum team working with industrial partners on new technologies to improve the sensitivity and number of gases that can be detected with application both to advanced manufacturing and climate change.
We are bringing together the UK quantum community including industry, academia and government to establish a shared UK understanding on standards, a position on future standards, and a mechanism for communication to and from industry partners on standards as they develop.
