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.

  • Post-doc positions available! (11/02/2020)- We have post-doc positions available, on themes of SiC quantum networking and spin-based quantum sensing enhanced by machine learning. Please contact Cristian (c.bonato@hw.ac.uk) if interested.
  • Welcome Back Dani! (11/02/2020)- Daniel has joined us straight from finishing his PhD in the preparation and characterisation of optical and optoelectronic devices based in two-dimensional semiconductors at the University of Valencia. At Heriot-Watt Daniel will be further exploring the experimental process from the preparation and characterisation through to the application in a final device using these 2D materials....
