Tough Mudders in Particle Physics 28 August 2015 Particle Physics PhD students are Tough Mudders. The Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile extreme obstacle course designed by the British Special Forces. On Saturday 22 August, three Bristol Particle Physics PhD students, Eugenia Price, Nicole Skidmore and Sophie Richards as well as recent PhD graduate David Voong, completed Tough Mudder with team mates Beki Price, Siphiwe Manda and Emma Runesson.

  • A strategic relationship: Oxford Instruments and the University of Bristol's School of Physics sign memorandum of understanding 24 August 2015 Oxford Instruments and the University of Bristol's School of Physics new strategic relationship aims to bring together Oxford Instruments as a training partner and collaborator with the three EPSRC funded Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) within the school – the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials, the Centre for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics and the Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantum Engineering.
  • Charting the slow death of the Universe - Galaxy and Mass Assembly survey releases first data at Honolulu 19 August 2015 An international team of astronomers, including a Bristol professor and several Bristol alumni, studying more than 200 000 galaxies, has measured the energy generated within a large portion of space more precisely than ever before. This represents the most comprehensive assessment of the energy output of the nearby Universe. Their findings were presented at the International Astronomy Union (IAU) General Assembly in Honolulu, Hawaii. They confirm that the energy produced in a section of the Universe today is only about half what it was two billion years ago and find that this fading is occurring across all wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the far infrared. The Universe is slowly dying.
  • Current Vacancies within CQP 18 August 2015 The Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) and the newly established Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QET Labs) within the University of Bristol are seeking to appoint exceptional individuals for a number of lecturer and research posts.
  • New optical chip lights up the race for quantum computer 14 August 2015 The microprocessor inside a computer is a single multipurpose chip that has revolutionised people’s life, allowing them to use one machine to surf the web, check emails and keep track of finances. Now, researchers from the University of Bristol in the UK and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) in Japan, have pulled off the same feat for light in the quantum world by developing an optical chip that can process photons in an infinite number of ways.
  • Quantum photonics passes integration milestone 10 August 2015 CQP Researchers bring chip-scale quantum devices closer to reality in new article in Nature Communications this month.
  • Professorship for Mark Thompson 7 August 2015 Congratulations to Mark Thompson of the Centre for Quantum Photonics who has recently been promoted to Professor of Quantum Photonics.
  • CQP Research workshop summary 3 July 2015 On 3rd July researchers from the Centre for Quantum Photonics held their annual research workshop.
