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.
NEW PAPERS FROM QOIL
Our paper on Local friendliness and a strong no-go theorem on the Wigner’s friend paradox has been published in Nature Physics. You can read about how it reveals contradiction between widely-held beliefs in our Griffith press-release, Science, or read the News&Views cover from Časlav Brukner.
NEW PAPERS FROM QOIL
Our paper about a photonic quantum processor capable of generation all possible futures of a stochastic process has been published in Nature Communications! See our Griffith press-release and numerous interviews and media covers.
Our review on quantum information processing is accessible on Applied Physics Reviews and on ArXiv. There we briefly cover a few topics in experimental and theoretical quantum computing with photons and provide further references to numerous reviews for an in depth study of the subject.
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.
