Centre for Quantum Photonics

 

Our goal in the Centre for Quantum Photonics is to explore fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics, as well as work towards future photonic quantum technologies by generating, manipulating and measuring single photons as well as the quantum systems that emit these photons.

The Centre spans the School of Physics and Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Faculties of Science and Engineering, and the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information.

The academic members of the Centre are:

  • Professor Jeremy O'Brien, Director of CQP, Royal Academy of Engineering, Chair in Emerging Technologies and Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering
  • Professor Mark Thompson, Deputy Director of CQP, Director of the Quantum Engineering CDT and Professor in Quantum Photonics
  • Professor John Rarity, Royal Society Fellow and Professor of Optical Communication Systems
  • Dr Ruth Oulton, Senior Lecturer of Physics and EPSRC Research Fellow in Quantum Technologies
  • Dr Jonathan Matthews, Lecturer of Physics and EPSRC Research Fellow in Quantum Technologies
  • Dr Anthony Laing, Lecturer of Quantum Photonics and EPSRC Research Fellow in Quantum Technologies
  • Dr Peter Turner, Lecturer of Quantum Engineering and Deputy Director of the Quantum Engineering CDT
  • Dr Chris Erven, Lecturer of Quantum Engineering
  • Dr Graham Marshall, Marie Curie Research Fellow
