  Simulation of quantum transport with cold atoms
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round
Quantum mechanics is believed to play a role in certain natural processes such as light harvesting. For example certain bacteria are capable of capturing the energy of an incoming photon and transporting the resulting excitation to the reaction centre with great efficiency.
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round
When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Ultracold single-atom quantum engines
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round
The technological progress is pushing towards the realization of smaller scale devices and, at the ultimate level, machines will be built only with one or a few atoms.
  Quantum simulations with Bose-Einstein Condensates
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round
We use modern techniques of laser cooling and magnetic and optical trapping to reach the lowest temperatures in the universe – just a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero – in very dilute atomic samples.
  Sustainable, optimised cleaning by designed release from dishwashing tablets
  Prof E Pelan
Applications accepted all year round
Normal dishwashing tablets are compact hydroscopic tablets or liquids/gels. The tablets are a proven technology, but have several disadvantages, namely they tend to age badly and clump rather than dispersing in the dishwasher.
  Ultra-sensitive atomic magnetometry for brain function diagnostics
  Dr V Guarrera
Applications accepted all year round
The huge progress achieved in the manipulation of quantum systems is opening novel routes towards the generation of realistic quantum-based technology.
  Quantum and noninear optics of a cold-atom ring laser with controlled dispersion
  Dr J Goldwin
Applications accepted all year round
When a pulse of light propagates through a medium it becomes distorted, and may appear to slow down, speed up, or even reverse direction.
  Contact lenses for colour blind patients
  Dr H Butt, Prof S Dimov
Applications accepted all year round
Nanotechnology has a myriad of possible biomedical applications. A PhD position exists in the area of wearable bio-technologies with the focus on producing contact lenses for colour blind patients.
  Short Range Test of the Newton’s Inverse Square Law of Gravitation
  Prof C C Speake
Applications accepted all year round
Arguably the deepest mystery in modern physics lies in the relationship between gravitation and the other known interactions. Experimental tests of Isaac Newton’s laws of gravitation in the laboratory can play an important role in testing new theoretical ideas that may help resolve this mystery.
  Development of Applications in Quantum Imaging
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round
We are leading the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology – a ground-breaking £80m collaborative project in partnership with the Universities of Glasgow, Nottingham, Southampton, Strathclyde and Sussex and in collaboration with over 70 industry partners.
