Quantum Technologies – Codeshare Event with IET

21st February 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Speaker:  Dr Paul Martin

Quantum Technology (QT), like cyber technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), is a broad group of technologies that have the potential to unlock enormous technical and business opportunity.  The defining characteristic of QT is the ability to manipulate unique properties of atoms.  This enables a wide range of applications, from more accurate ways of sensing the environment to revolutionising computing.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is hosting a lecture on Quantum Technologies as part of its Prestige Lecture Series.

IET invites members of the CETC to join the audience at Churchill College on 21st February. Please book your place directly with IET at  https://localevents.theiet.org/43b75d  and

send an email to cetc.comms@gmail.com to let us know your attending, please.

The CETC Committee invites current members of the CETC to join us at the Churchill College Bar before and after the Lecture.

Dr. Paul Martin is a Partner at PA Consulting’s Global Innovation and Technology Centre in Melbourn near Cambridge.  His role is to lead innovation and research strategies through to solution delivery and he is  currently the focus for QT at PA.  After gaining a MEng at the University of Bath and a PhD in DSP covering wireless communications, Paul was a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for several technology companies before joining PA.

Paul will present on the concept of and background to QT, current developments and its potential for the future.  He will give examples of where Quantum Technology can disrupt industries including the established area of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS).  Precision timing, improved inertial navigation and gravity navigation can and could be delivered effectively with QT.
