Teledyne e2v’s innovations lead developments in healthcare, life sciences, space, transportation, defense and security, and industrial markets.
About Teledyne e2v Quantum Group
In recent times the science behind the microscopic properties of atoms and subatomic particles has become better understood, bringing us closer to being able to utilise these properties. The team at Teledyne e2v aim to harness these effects to produce devices that have exciting new applications in the real world. The Quantum group consists of a team of circa. 25 highly skilled and talented people with skills in systems engineering, vacuum engineering, quantum physics, materials science, RF and microwave electronics, software engineering and mechanical engineering and are based in Chelmsford, Essex, UK. At Teledyne e2v, the seemingly impossible will become possible. Quantum technologies are set to provide much-improved capabilities in timing, sensing and measurement, electronics, imaging, computing and simulation, and communications.
Within iqClock Teledyne e2v will develop the vacuum and control system for the integrated optical lattice clock (Task 1).

As the Chief Technology Officer, Prof. Trevor Cross brings over 30 years of technology, product innovation and commercial experience, which includes over ten years spent at plc board level as Technical Director. He plays a pivotal role in Teledyne e2v’s university engagement programs and today leads the company’s growing Quantum Technologies activity. His experience in committee roles include council membership of the former Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council, Chair of the Electronics, Sensors and Photonics KTN, and he currently chairs Innovate UK’s Special Interest Group in Quantum Technologies and is a board member of CSA Catapult.
Dr. Ole Kock is leading the science team for the development of Quantum Sensors and has set up the quantum prototyping facility at Teledyne e2v. Currently he is the project lead for over 6 projects relating to the development of quantum sensors. He has over 10 years of experience in the field of laser cooling and has specialized early in compact and mobile systems. Previous roles were in the Ultra Cold Atoms Group in Birmingham where he set up a mobile atomic optical clock with strontium during his PhD following two years as a Research Fellow.
