Brian Smith

University Lecturer, Experimental Quantum Physics

Oxford Optical Quantum Technologies Group

My research interests lie broadly in the areas of experimental optical and quantum physics. This ranges from implementations of quantum information protocols with optical systems such as quantum key distribution for secure communications to studying fundamental quantum physics using optical means, e.g. examining the commutation relations between creation and annihilation operators. To this end, our work covers a significant spread of topics that includes development of new technologies and techniques for the creation, coherent manipulation, and complete characterization of quantum light.

I am a Tutorial Fellow in Physics at Keble College and a University Lecturer in Experimental Quantum Physics within the Physics Department at the University of Oxford. I teach a broad range of topics in both the College and Department. Please visit my teaching website for additional information on past and current teaching.
