Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information (NSQI)
The Bristol Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information (NSQI) is the University's dedicated research centre for nanoscience and quantum information activities, located next to the main HHW Physics building. The upper floors house the Quantum Engineering and Technology Labs (QET Labs) and the Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training (QE-CDT). The lower ground floor comprises fifteen state-of-the art Low Noise Labs (LNLs), which provide extremely stable low noise environments for both quantum research and research at the nanoscale and beyond.
For reception, room bookings, access and general enquiries email Administrative Assistant Alex Martin or call +44 (0)117 39 40001.
