The Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) aims to explore quantum phenomena, such as superpositions and entanglement, in optical and optically controlled system, with the long-term prospects of their practical utilisation. In the long-term, the outcomes of this research are expected to be used in practice and translated, for example, into more sensitive sensors or safer communication methods. The Centre has been established in partnership with the University of Oxford under the International Research Agenda Programme operated by the Foundation for Polish Science and is hosted by the Centre of New Technologies, an interdisciplinary scientific unit of the University of Warsaw focused on research and technology development.
