Molecular Beam Epitaxy applied to quantum devices for industrial applications

Impact: Economic impacts, Technological impacts

Narrative

This University of Manchester research underpins UK industry’s global position in millimetre-wave imaging and ultra-high-precision sensing. These are key technologies in a range of industrial, medical and consumer electronics applications. The devices and methods developed by the research team are now used by a range of companies leading to economic impacts for the UK in strong export markets. In this case study we provide examples of impacts that support commercial sales in excess of £300m by UK SME and FTSE-listed companies in three sectors: automotive radar (e2v), terahertz imaging (TeraView), and linear encoders (Renishaw PLC).
