Prof. Jeremy O'Brien has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant and has been awarded over €2M to advance his work on Photonic Quantum Computing. We are grateful for the continued support of the ERC in funding this research.
Last week, CQP and the Quantum Engineering CDT hosted the second in a series of SWQT group workshops, funded by the GW4 initiator fund. With over 50 participants from the GW4 Universities (Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter and beyond) plus additional guests representing Industrial Partners from around the UK, the workshop was a great success.
Following on from last year's success, we are pleased to announce the return of the Bristol Quantum Information Technologies Workshop, BQIT:15, in April this year. This event, taking place at the Colston Hall in Bristol, has a limited number of places available so please register your interest online as soon as possible.
In December, the UN declared 2015 the International Year of Light, with the aim of focussing on the topic of light science and its applications. In doing so, the UN has acknowledged that light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health.

About Me:

Dr. Dylan Mahler
Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Dylan is a research assistant with the Centre for Quantum Photonics.  He received his PhD from the University of Toronto in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Aephraim Steinberg.  During his PhD, Dylan studied various aspects of quantum information (in particular quantum state and process characterization) in the context of bulk linear optics.  In particular, he demonstrated adaptive tomography of single qubits and showed that such an estimation strategy provides a quadratic speedup over the best static estimation strategy possible.  
At CQP Dylan will continue to develop strategies for quantum state and process characterization but in the context of on-chip quantum photonics and continuous variable quantum optics. 
In his spare time Dylan enjoys playing music, reading, and running, although he does find the hills of Bristol to be a little daunting.

Did you know...?

January 2015 marks the start of Bristol's year as Europe's symbol of all things green! Bristol will become the first city in the world to plant one tree per child, a campaign led by the Australian environmentalist John Dee with support from Olivia Newton John.
