Technology accessible for all.
At Quantum Detectors the mission is simple but important: Since 2007 we have been taking novel detector technology developed at world leading scientific facilities and making it accessible to all. This ensures best use of the original time and investment in developing these products, and most importantly, supplies scientists globally with the tools required to drive research forward and try new technology for new science.

Quantum Detectors is a spinout from the Science and Technology Facilities Council and Diamond Light Source, the UK’s synchrotron. These partners have an excellent internationally acclaimed track record in the development of both detection technology and turnkey detector systems. Quantum Detectors is registered as a UK limited company – 05575019.
Quantum Detectors are committed to playing our part in looking after our environment and reaching the reductions in greenhouse gas output required to meet the Paris Agreement targets. While our equipment improves scientific discovery rates and therefore plays a part in propelling the human race to use resources more efficiently, our business involves essential travel to meet people and install hardware and other carbon emitting practices. Our emissions of greenhouse gases have been calculated using QAS approved and independently audited mechanism to which we added a substantial contingency. We purchase credits to offset these from Carbon Footprint, a UK based provider of offset projects accredited by: Certified Emission Reductions (CERs), Gold Standard CERs, Gold Standard Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) and Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). Quantum Detectors have chosen to support projects which offer additional societal benefits and larger projects which avoid emission equally.
Development | Strength in partnership
Quantum Detectors will continue to bring existing and future detection developments to the wider scientific and commercial markets from Diamond and the STFC, but in addition to this, Quantum Detectors collaborates with other large scale facilities such as the ESRF, and also academic institutes such as the University of Glasgow. This broad range of sources for technology enables Quantum Detectors to offer the most appropriate selection of products to scientific laboratories. If you have a new product or a new requirement not served by the products listed on our site, please get in touch, as we may be able to help.
Quantum Detectors work with local colleges to actively promote alternative careers in STEM roles, beyond academia. If you are interested in a summer placement, please get in touch.
