The Quantum Research Center (QRC) drives the research and development of quantum technologies in the region. Led by globally recognized experts in the field, we are inspired by our vision of quantum technologies that identifies the multiple positive applications our work can have in industries and scientific disciplines far beyond our core areas of focus.
QRC is part of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a global scientific research center attracting the world’s foremost scientists and researchers. TII leads worldwide advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, quantum computing, cryptography and quantum communications, directed energy, secure communication, smart devices, advanced materials, and propulsion and space technologies, and biotechnology fields.
TII belongs to the Abu Dhabi Government’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), which oversees the technology research in the emirate.
We develop state-of-the-art, next generation quantum technologies such as quantum cryptography, quantum communications and quantum sensing. We conduct basic research and partner with other scientific institutions to pioneer new projects.
We operate a full-stack approach to quantum computation based on superconducting circuits, crafting ultra-precise quantum sensors that exploit the levitation properties of microscopic objects, and designing entanglement distribution for quantum communication to provide real-life quantum cryptographic solutions.
