International Max Planck Partnership
Strathclyde Quantum Optics in Glasgow takes a leading role in the new International Max Planck Partnership in Measurement and Observatory as one of five Scottish physics departments together with five Max Planck institutes in Germany.
The new International Max Planck Partnership (IMPP) in Measurement and Observation at the Quantum Limit launched in Edinburgh on 19th December 2013.
Strathclyde Physics in Glasgow takes a leading role in the partnership as one of five Scottish Physics Departments together with five Max Planck Institutes in Germany.
The IMPP aims to encourage new scientific collaborations at the highest level in quantum technology, specifically in gravity-wave interferometry, quantum optics and quantum information.
It's the first collaboration of its kind in the world and is supported by the Scottish Funding Council, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Science and Technology Facilities Council with £10M over five years, together with internal funding from the universities involved.
The Partnership underlines Strathclyde Physics' standing as one of the drivers in the emerging field of quantum technology.
