UofG partners with Oxford Instruments NanoScience on quantum computing
The University of Glasgow, home of the Quantum Circuits Group, has announced it is using Oxford Instruments’ next generation Cryofree® refrigerator, Proteox, as part of its research to accelerate the commercialisation of quantum computing in the UK. The University of Glasgow, its subsidiary and commercialisation partner, Kelvin Nanotechnology, and Oxford Instruments NanoScience are part of a larger consortium supported by funding from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, granted in April 2020. The consortium partners will boost quantum technology development by the design, manufacture, and test of superconducting quantum devices.
Proteox is a next-generation Cryofree® system that provides a step change in modularity and adaptability for ultra-low temperature experiments in condensed-matter physics and quantum computing industrialisation. The Proteox platform has been developed to provide a single, interchangeable modular solution that can support multiple users and a variety of set-ups or experiments. It also includes remote management software which is integral to the system design, enabling, for example, the system to be managed from anywhere in the world.
