This project aims to develop a photonic quantum processor based on a planar waveguide architecture incorporating rare-earth doped crystals.
We create the coldest stuff in the Universe – a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) – by laser-cooling helium atoms to within a millionth of a degree Kelvin. At these extremely low temperatures particles behave more like waves. You will use the BEC to study...
An optical quantum memory will capture a pulse of light, store it and then controllably release it. This has to be done without ever knowing what you have stored, because a measurement will collapse the quantum state. We are exploring a "photon echo" process...
This project aims to explore and measure new or predicted phenomena in complex multicomponent quantum systems.
Student will build and characterise a new source of quantum squeezed light genearted from an optical parametric oscillator
This projects aims to construct an ultra-sensitive magnetic field sensor from a whispering gallery mode crystal resonator.
