Uncovering the secrets of the quantum world through experimentation
We use photons to investigate the fundamental rules of quantum physics and how to use them to make revolutionary quantum technologies.
Our work directly addresses important research questions in quantum computing, remote processing, quantum information security and precision measurement. Our lab is part of the Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology, a research centre comprised of Australian and international groups working to develop world-leading quantum devices.
69TH LINDAU NOBEL LAUREATE MEETING
Congratulations to Nora for being selected to attend the meeting of young scientists at the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Germany. The key topics of this year’s meeting will be dark matter and cosmology, laser physics and gravitational waves.

MEASUREMENT OF AN OPTICAL PHASE AT THE ULTIMATE PRECISION LIMIT
Our new paper titled "Experimental optical phase measurement approaching the exact Heisenberg limit" has been published in Nature Communications! There we show how to measure an optical phase with the best precision allowed by the laws of quantum physics. See phys.org or click the link below for the Griffith News article.
ALICE CAN STEER BOB, BUT CAN BOB STEER ALICE?
Some years ago, a strange type of quantum correlation has been shown, in which Alice could affect (steer) the outcome of Bob's measurent, but Bob could not do the same to Alice. But is it really so? Does such type of quantum correlation actually exist? How can Alice be sure that Bob has no way to steer her? The Editors at Physical Review Letters suggest to read our new paper, where you can find a conclusive answer to these questions!
