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.
