Dr George Kourmoulakis joins us as a new post-doc who will be working on pick-and-place assembly of single sheets of atoms into moiré materials with high levels of uniformity. A huge welcome to Heriot-Watt and the QPL group George!!
A huge welcome to our 2 new PhD students Sachin and Prokhor who join us to start working on spectroscopy and quantum optics of the collectively coupled indistinguishable quantum emitters and fabrication and optical spectroscopy of transition metal dichalcogenide heterostructures respectively. Welcome to the group both!!
Congratulations to 2 of our PhD students, Sheena and Finley! Big congratulations to both Sheena and Finley who have won 1st year Postgraduate Research Prizes from the school of Engineering and Physical Sciences for their research posters presented at the Poster Event showcasing their individual research work. Nicely done both!!
The first piece of equipment of our new Quantum Magnetometry facility has just been installed and successfully tested! A Bluefors dilution refrigerator will enable us to study complex materials and heterostructures and develop quantum technologies at milli-kelvin temperatures. Looking forward to learning some exciting new physics!
Muhammad (Junaid) has successfully defended his viva, after discussing his work with the examiners, Tim Taminiau from QuTech (Delft) and Margherita Mazzera. After some well-deserved partying, and a research visit to Stuttgart, he’s going to lead work at our Quantum Magnetometry facility: stay tuned for more exciting results to come!
Brian has been awarded a prestigious ERC Advanced grant by the European Reseach Council to assemble complex materials single sheet of atoms by single sheet of atoms. This will open the possibility to design the behaviour of electrons very precisely, to create novel devices not otherwise possible. Looking forward to much exciting physics over the…
