Theory and Experiment

The Physics of Quantum Materials research group in the School of Physical Sciences, University of Kent, carries out theoretical and experimental research in Condensed Matter Physics with a strong focus on Quantum Materials. We aim specifically to discover and understand novel properties that could find application in future quantum computing technologies through close collaboration between theory and experiment.

Research Themes - Quantum probing & sensing - Nonclassical state engineering - Continuous variable quantum information - Open quantum systems & information dynamics - Quantum coherence & correlations - Experimental Quantum Optics - Quantum Walks & Quantum transport - Complex quantum systems - Cooperative light scattering by cold atomic systems - Positronium and antimatter experiments

The Quantum Nanophotonics Laboratory is led by Ikerbasque Research Professor Gabriel Molina-Terriza. We are a team of scientists endeavoruing to unveil the physics of the interactions of quantum light and matter at the nanoscale. We experiment with exotic states of light such as single photon states, entangled photons or squeezed states of light and force them to interact with very small structures. We aim to control the quantum features of nanoparticles by exploiting their interaction with light.
