The research interests of the quantum optics group are experimental quantum information, the physics and applications of of atom-light interaction, quantum metrology and non-linear optics. We are located in the Department of Quantum Science, which is a part of the Research School of Physics and Engineering.
The Laser Physics, Optics and Photonics group undertakes research and training at the highest international level on a range of topics with a balance between fundamental, strategic and applied laser-based research. The research program spans many of the most exciting aspects of contemporary laser physics, optics and photonics.
The Solid-state spectroscopy group specialises in the study of optically active centres in crystals. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, combining the fields of fundamental spectroscopy, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, quantum information, crystal growth and quantum physics theory.
We undertake experimental and theoretical research on Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of exciton-polaritons in semiconductor microcavities. Our projects include low-dimensional physics of exciton-polaritons, the generation of non-classical states, non-equlibrium physics, and fundamental investigations aiming to enable future polaritonic devices.
