Description This work is part of a larger activity with other universities. We have carried out detailed device processing based upon designs provided by other partners, which has resulted in devices used by our partners. This was instrumental in recent bids to Quantum Technology hubs for these partners..
Exploitation Route Device results were utilised by Heriot Watt and Glasgow in their contributions to Quantum Hub bids.
Sectors Digital/Communication/Information Technologies (including Software)




including Industrial Biotechology

Description This grant is part of a larger activity in which it is linked to other grants at other universities. To date the work has resulted in publications and conferences. The work has recently been used for contributions to Quantum Hub bids by Glasgow and Heriot Watt Universities

Results and Impact General Public invited to see the technology of Southampton University. The University of Southampton opened its doors to thousands of people for its biggest outreach event of the year, Science and Engineering Festival 2016, part of British Science Week. Amongst the huge range of activities, tours and shows on offer was the opportunity to see inside the state-of-the-art Zepler Institute Cleanroom Complex, home to the best set of nanoelectronics and photonics fabrication capabilities in the UK.
