Research areas: Quantum Cryptography, Quantum Communication, and Quantum Correlations.
We are looking for highly motivated Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows to work on the theoretical aspects of quantum correlations (quantum nonlocality, semi-device-independent networks, etc) and quantum cryptography.
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
