Professor Jeremy O'Brien recently met with his RISE partner, Executive Editor of The Times, Daniel Finklestein OBE. Daniel's article describing his visit to CQP was published on the Times website this month.

Dr Anthony Laing and Dr Austin Lund are co-authors on a paper showing a revolutionary way to run a simpler quantum algorithm. Their findings could dramatically bring forward the development of a 'quantum computer' capable of beating a conventional computer.

This month Dr Chris Erven and Mr Javier Sabines-Chesterking attended the prestigious Research to Innovator course at SETsquared Bristol's Engine Shed base.  The course is aimed at the brightest and best postdoctoral researchers.

CQP researchers have collaborated with University of Strathclyde, University of Glasgow and Sun Yatsen University on a paper entitled "Fast electrical switching of orbital angular momentum modes using ultra-compact integrated vortex emitters."

BOSS participated in the Bristol Bright Night, a special evening where researchers share their work with people of all ages in order to promote science and inspire the youngest members of the general public to embrace a scientific career.

About Me

Jianwei Wang:

"I am a PhD candidate at the Centre for Quantum Photonics. I have been deeply fascinated by the beauty of light and particularly interested in playing photons on chips. After I finished my Master projects on high-density photonic integration technologies for optical interconnects and optical sensing in Zhejiang University in Chin, in the autumn of 2011, I moved into the magical and exciting quantum physics world and luckily became a member of CQP one of greatest group of quantum photonics.

"I intensively involved myself in on-chip generating and manipulating so-called twisted light associated with light’s phase and spatial distributions. My research is currently focused on developing quantum computations and quantum communications technologies based on silicon photonic waveguide circuits. When I am not really thinking about quantum physics, I enjoy watching movies, reading Kongfu fiction, cooking chinese food for friends, photography, playing basketball and traveling with friends." 

Did you know...?

Bristol is a hub of comedy with many famous comedians starting their careers here. Marcus Brigstock, Matt Lucas and David Walliams all studied at Bristol University and Russell Howard and Stephen Merchant were born here. You can frequently catch CQP's own Jacques Carolan performing stand up comedy in and around the city.
