Software Consultancy

Quantum Detectors specialise in software consultancy for science and large scale facilities, from capturing requirements, development, project delivery, to long term support for deployed projects. Our primary customers are world leading research facilities such as Diamond Light Source.

Our team consists of experienced research scientists as well as software developers, we believe this combination is vital in scientific software development to ensure requirements are fully captured and that ultimately customers are provided with complete solutions. Many scientific software teams lack sufficient understanding of the scientific question which they are addressing.
