An optimal beam splitter layout for universal multiport interferometers
Oxford Physicists have developed a new method for implementing universal multiport interferometers, which uses a more compact mesh of beam splitters. This new design is demonstrably optimal in terms of compactness of the mesh of beam splitters and will be used to improve both quantum computation and signal processing capabilities.

Wireless radiation detector
Researchers at Oxford Physics have successfully produced a radioactivity detector using a PiN diode that is smaller and affordable to produce than the traditionally used Geiger counter. The device is also able to provide energy discrimination of incoming particles. Furthermore, Bluetooth technology allows this device to link to a phone or a computer generating a more convenient way to monitor radioactivity levels. These detectors show promise in environmental radioactivity monitoring.

Novel signal cross coupling method
The Oxford-developed signal coupler can replace the traditional, bulky cross-waveguide coupler, as well as the freestanding dielectric beam splitter in heterodyne astronomy receivers, and has applications within satellites, telecommunications and radar, and large power distribution networks such as multiple-path phase array networks.

Coherent Conversion between Optical and Microwave Photons in Rydberg Gases
Oxford researchers have developed a device that enables coherent interconversion between microwave and optical photons. This invention has numerous applications across the spectrum of quantum technology, including powerful signal processing, detection of hidden metal objects, subcutaneous cancer detection, and in communication channels enabling a scalable network of superconducting quantum bits for computing.

Non-degenerate Travelling Wave Parametric Amplifier
This invention could be used any situation where an ultra-low noise amplification method is needed (astronomical instruments, qubit experiments) in addition to possible uses as an ultra-low noise mixer.
