Welcome to the new staff and students at the Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training. We also want to say congratulations to the recently appointed CDT Lecturers Dr Peter Turner and Dr Chris Erven, who are both members of CQP. 

Entanglement, one of the most delicate phenomena in nature, is an essential resource for quantum information applications. Researchers at CQP, led by Joshua Silverstone and Raffaelle Santagati, reveal their latest work on arXiv.

B.O.S.S held an opening party on the 16th October to celebrate the start of the new social year. The event was to encourage students to join the society and to learn what activities and opportunities are available over the next year. 

A group of physicists in Canada have shown for the first time that it is possible to compress the kind of data that might be used in the computers of tomorrow — known as quantum bits, or qubits. The article includes previous work by CQP's Dr Peter Turner. 

Liason Officer Jack Munns represented the Bristol Optical Student Society earlier this month at the invitation-only Student Leadership Conference in USA. During the conference he was able to meet other OSA Student Chapter leaders from around the globe.

Congratulations to Jasmin Meinecke who has successfully defended her Ph.D thesis at her Viva this month. 



Postgraduate Student Administrator / Executive Assistant
The Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training (QE CDT) in the School of Physics is looking to recruit an organised and enthusiastic individual to take up the joint role of Postgraduate Student Administrator and Executive Assistant. This post is part-time (Tuesday-Friday 9am-5pm), and fixed term for 3 years.

To register your interest in future opportunities within CQP please submit your CV and Covering letter to: 

Please continue to check for new posts on our opportunities page. 



At the moment there are no studentships available. However, for more information on studying at the University of Bristol please visit the Postgraduate Study Webpage. Here you can find information about the courses on offer and the support available for students.

About Me

Dr Nobuyuki Matsuda, Visiting Fellow:

Dr Matsuda from NTT Basic Research Laboratories in Japan joined CQP this month to undertake collaborative research until the end of this year. Dr Matsuda has worked with researchers from CQP for a number of years having previously visited CQP for a several months in 2009:

"In my PhD project in Tohoku University, Japan, I was engaged in research on the measurement of single-photon Kerr effect. Now in NTT, I'm working on nonlinear optics using slow light photonic crystals devices, frequency modulation of single photons, etc. For this visit I'm very excited at a fusion of the sophisticated quantum optics technology in Bristol with our photonics device technology. In my spare time I enjoy gardening in my little garden, playing the sanshin and travelling (especially observing castle walls)."

Did you know...?

The Wills Memorial Building is a beautiful building, it stands at 68m (215 ft) high, making it twice as tall as the nearby Cabot Tower. The view from the top of Wills Tower, some 68 metres above Park Street, is unparalleled. You can get a guided tour to the top of the tower on the first Wednesday and Saturday of the month and if you're lucky you may even get to see one of the Wills Tower residents, the Peregrine Falcon.
