Welcome to the Quantum Photonics Lab at Heriot-Watt University

Defining and controllably manipulating quantum states in a material presents both huge challenges and fantastic opportunities. We work at the interface of quantum optics, condensed-matter physics, and materials science to pursue this goal by creating novel quantum photonic devices. This enables the discovery of new science which is likely to be essential for future technologies. Read more.

  • We are recruiting! (28/11/2018) - We are looking for two post-docs to join our group, one on SiC quantum spintronics, the other on quantum optics in 2D materials. Check our "Openings" for more info.
  • Royal Society workshop on SiC quantum spintronics (06/11/2018) - We are just back from Chicheley Hall, where we have organized a workshop on SiC quantum spintronics, together with Sang-Yun Lee (KAUST, Korea) and Joerg Wrachtrup (Stuttgart). The event was a great opportunity to bring together quantum physicists with materials growers, device engineers and industry, to develop quantum technologies in this material.
