Quantum Metrology Laboratory was established within the scope of TÜBİTAK UME Research Infrastructure Renewal and Development Project, which started in 2017, and accelerated its activities by taking its place in the TÜBİTAK UME organization chart in 2018. In the process of redefinition of units in the International System of Units (SI), the Quantum Metrology Laboratory plays an important role along with other activities carried out to ensure the continuity and development of TÜBİTAK UME's competencies and to reduce external dependency. In addition to the creation of the "quantum metrological triangle" structure through the production and characterization of the resistance, voltage and current standards, the ongoing infrastructure is also to be used in the production and measurement of "quantum dot thermometers" and "Coulomb blockade thermometers" in temperature, as well as bringing new opportunities to the institute and the country in fields of magnetism, optoelectronics, high frequency metrology and nanometrology.
The UME Quantum Metrology laboratory is designed to be active in basic research, as well as having manufacturing and measurement capabilities for quantum SI standards. The laboratory is planned to be active in a variety of fields, including superconducting electronics and solid-state qubits, quantum charge and spin transport in semiconductor nanostructures, III-V-based high-speed devices for electronics and communication, nanomagnetism and spintronics.
