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.

  • EPSRC Early-Career Fellowship on SiC quantum spintronics (06/03/2019)- Cristian Bonato has been awarded a prestigious fellowship by EPSRC. The award, worth >£1M, will allow us to study spins in SiC, to demonstrate a quantum memory device for quantum networking. There are post-doc positions available on this topic: if interested, please get in touch!
  • 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.
