Taking advantage of the subtleties of quantum mechanics to do useful tasks is one of the keys to future technological advances.  In the Centre for Engineered Quantum systems, we are developing theory and experiment to identify promising systems to that end.  For instance, recent experiments have demonstrated that we can manipulate the quantum state of a single electron, or a few electrons in an electronic circuit.  Understanding the physical constraints on this, and other quantum-coherent systems is what drives us.
