The University of Kent has an active research community studying a range of phenomena in theoretical and applied condensed matter physics. The School of Physical Sciences hosts the interdisciplinary Functional Materials Group, with major recent investments in both theory and experiment of correlated quantum matter.
The UK Quantum Technology Hub for Quantum Communications is a synergistic partnership of eight UK Universities (Bristol, Cambridge, Heriot-Watt, Leeds, Royal Holloway, Sheffield, Strathclyde, and York), numerous private sector companies (BT, the National Physical Laboratory, Toshiba Research Europe Ltd, amongst others), and public sector bodies (Bristol City Council and the National Dark Fibre Infrastructure Service), that have come together in a unique collaboration to exploit fundamental laws of quantum physics for the development of secure communications technologies
Established by the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF), the Center for Quantum Devices opened June 1, 2012 in the H.C. Ørsted Institute, bldg. 3, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. This building is also home to the Nano-Science Center.
We perform research in theoretical condensed matter physics, including quantum information processing, computational physics, transport phenomena, energy conversion and solar energy, as well as the dynamics of complex systems. Our research work is interdisciplinary and also explores the interface between atomic physics, quantum optics, nano-science, and computing. We are also studying artificial photosynthesis, light-to-electricity conversion, nano-mechanics, hybrid quantum electro-mechanical systems, quantum nano-electronics and quantum emulators.
