The Centre for Quantum Dynamics undertakes experimental and theoretical studies of the dynamics of quantum systems. These systems are composed of microscopic particles such as photons, electrons, and atoms. What makes them fascinating is their behaviour: they defy the principles of physics that govern the more familiar behaviour of macroscopic systems.
We aim to understand quantum dynamics better, to develop new ways of controlling it, and to apply it to future technologies such as the quantum internet and laser-accelerated particle therapy.
Our key research themes are:
- Quantum Information Processing Laboratories
- Ultrafast Quantum Dynamics Experiments
- Quantum Biophysics
- Quantum Foundations, Information, and Control Theory
A collaborative environment
Our theoretical and experimental physicists are encouraged to exchange ideas and work collaboratively. This creates an exciting environment where boundaries are pushed every day, making it ideal for the training of research higher degree, honours and undergraduate students.
