The group works on a very broad spectrum of problems, from standard quantum optics, through physics of matter, to quantum information theory, and physics of ultracold atoms.

The quantum part of CNQO consists of Prof Stephen Barnett (FRS), Dr John Jeffers, Dr Daniel Oi and Dr Shashank Virmani. We are part of QUISCO, the quantum information network in Scotland. Recently joining Strathclyde Physics is Stefan Kuhr as the new Professor of Experimental Quantum Information.
