Congratulations to Prof. Erling Riis, Dr. Paul Griffin and Dr. Jonathan Pritchard who are leading work on DISCOVERY, a £10m IUK programme to establish commercial supply chains for quantum computing in collaboration with UK industry.
Hearty congratulations to Dr. Rachel Offer for winning both this year’s Institute of Physics, Quantum Electronics and Photonics Group Doctoral Research Prize as well as the Fred Stern prize (best Strathclyde Physics PhD thesis of the year). Well done!
New paper out in Communications Physics.
Andrew MacKellar won first prize at the SUPA Student Poster Competition 2016 for his poster on “Phase-contrast interferometry: Single-shot, phase insensitive readout of an atom interferometer.” Further details of this prestigious prize can be found at the SUPA website, where Andrew is quoted as saying “I feel incredibly fortunate… to work in such an exciting line of work with such ridiculously skilled people.”
Group members Paul Griffin, Erling Riis and Aidan Arnold, with Institute of Photonics‘ Jennifer Hastie and Alan Kemp were today awarded nearly £5M to develop next-generation quantum technology devices as part of a University of Birmingham led Quantum Technology Hub. The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme aims to ensure the successful transition of quantum technologies from laboratory to industry and is delivered by EPSRC, Innovate UK, BIS, NPL, GCHQ, DSTL and the KTN.
