Welcome to the QMAPP group in Sydney
Quantum Materials and Applications @ Macquarie University
The Quantum Materials and Applications (QMAPP) group focuses on cross-disciplinary research activities in quantum physics, nanotechnology and material science. With state-of-the-art facilities located at Macquarie University and CSIRO, we are part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS), a multi-institutional centre whose mission is to study and harness the features of quantum physics for the realisation of quantum-based technologies.
Macquarie University is part of the Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA), an innovative collaboration between four Sydney universities backed by the New South Wales government. The SQA will help foster the quantum ecosystem in Sydney through industry engagement, education and entrepreneurship.
Our QMAPP researchers are also passionate about research commercialisation. Members of our team are involved in a commercialisation project to bring robust and affordable spectrometers to the market. This initiative was initially funded through EQUS Translation Research Lab (TRL) program. Since then the team has completed CSIRO's deep-tech startup acceleration program ON Accelerate, and the commercial entity, Redback Systems, was created to carry the venture forward into the market.
