Welcome to the Quantum Photonics Lab at Heriot-Watt University

Controlling and measuring quantum states in a material presents both huge challenges and fantastic opportunities. We work at the interface of quantum optics, condensed-matter physics, electrical engineering and materials science to pursue this goal by creating novel quantum devices. This enables the discovery of new science, essential to develop for future technologies. Read more.
