Laing Group

Research interests and activities

My group investigates how new technologies can be realised by harnessing the unusual properties of quantum physics. Over the coming years and decades, this field will have an increasing impact upon society, bringing a technological revolution potentially as far reaching as that of the information age of the twentieth century, or the industrial revolution. Among these advances, quantum computers and quantum simulators, will solve certain problems that would take conventional computers the lifetime of the universe to solve.

Major research topics
