Photonics and Quantum Sciences Group

We are part of the Department of Physics and the Advanced Technology Institute, here we focus on exploring and exploiting the interaction of light with matter.

What we have to offer

We are involved in exciting research around spintronics, quantum electrodynamics and hybrid circuits which we explore using our various laboratories.
