Optical Quantum Technologies

Group Leaders:

The behavior of the microscopic world is governed by quantum mechanics, a set of rules the allow us to predict their behavior. In the Oxford Optical Quantum Technologies Group, we have three central research objectives. The first is the development of experimental tools that allow us to create, manipulate and measure quantum states of light. The second objective is focused on the use of such tools to create new technologies that surpass the performance of their classical counterparts, or even enable functionality not possible using only classical resources. Finally, we are interested in furthering our understanding of the fundamental tenets of quantum physics and aim to test these founding assumptions experimentally.
