Latest Developments

CQP Summer School: We are encouraging students to learn more about Quantum Photonics through our Summer School from the 3rd – 7th August 2015. The summer school will be open to first year undergraduate and sixth form students with the aim of inspiring a future generation of scientists and engineers. The students will work with instructors to understand what light is, how it can be used to transmit information and how it can play a key role in quantum information processing. Students will also learn about the potential career options available with a science degree. 


"Entangled Photons unlock new super-sensitive characterisation of quantum technologies" - Paper released in Optica

New research by CQP researchers heralds a breakthrough in quantum sensing which could create better sensors for medical research. The work has been published in the new OSA journal Optica.

EPSRC Quantum Technology fellowship success

CQP is pleased to announce that Prof. John Rarity and Dr Jonathan Matthews have been awarded highly competitive fellowships as part of the EPSRC Quantum Technology Programme. 

Quantum Communications Hub official launch
Members of CQP's Communications Research Team presented a demonstration of their latest technological developments at the Quantum Communications Hub launch event on the 4th June, at the Ron Cooke Hub building, at the University of York.

Beccie Whittaker wins Postgraduate Conference Award!
As part of the School of Physics postgraduate conference, attendees were asked to vote for the best talk. Congratulations to CQP's very own Beccie Whittaker who was nominated for her talk on "Quantum-Enhanced Absorption Spectroscopy."

 IAS Ben Meaker visiting professorships

Thanks to the IAS Ben Meaker visiting professorship scheme we have had been fortunate to have two visiting professors with us in CQP over the past month. Prof. Jingbo Wang from the University of Western Australia worked with us for three weeks from 15th May - 6th June and Assoc. Professor Tom Stace from University of Queensland will be working in CQP until 18th July. 

Prof Jeremy O'Brien presents Big Ideas in Science

As part of the Big Ideas in Science series, on 20th June, Prof. O'Brien gave a talk to sixth form students and undergraduates on the future of Quantum Technologies.. 

The Great Physics Bake Off

9th June 2015 saw the return of the Great Physics Bake Off, a chance for staff and students within Physics to show off their baking prowess by creating scientific cakes and raising over £500 to support Emmaus Bristol, a charity that helps homeless people help themselves.


There is currently a rolling advert for a Post-Doctoral Researcher position within the CQP. Applications are welcome online at any time and the timing of the selection process will be dependent on the applications received. 

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


We are currently accepting applications for University Studentships in CQP and The Quantum Engineering CDT via our online  application system ‘Hobsons’.
To apply for a studentship within CQP please select 'Faculty of Science' as your Programme Choice with 'Physics' as your programme. The department will be 'Quantum Photonics'.

About Me:

Jonathan Matthews - Lecturer
Jonathan Matthews is a newly appointed Lecturer in the School of Physics and an academic member of the Centre for Quantum Photonics, affiliated to Bristol’s recently launched QETLabs. He is a co-investigator on the £29M multi-institution Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Enhance Imaging,  QuantIC. He is co-investigator on a US Army Research Office project to develop new ways to characterise quantum computers and he was awarded, in April of 2015, a 5 year EPSRC early career fellowship to support his research activities.

His research interests are in harnessing quantum states of light to reach the ultimate limits in precision measurement and sensing and also to use quantum states of light to simulate other quantum systems, such as coherent transport phenomena using quantum walks.

Outside of the lab, he is a keen swimmer (in both swimming pools and local rivers), supports Bristol Rugby, has an interest in classic film, enjoys the outdoors (in particular the coast) and continues to struggle learning to surf British waters.

Did you know...?

From Monday 6th July, 70 Shaun the Sheep sculptures will be grazing all over Bristol, in the North, South, East and West of the city, showcasing all that this beautiful city has to offer. For more information and to find out where each Shaun will be, including the University of Bristol sponsored "Flock'n Roll" take a look at the Shaun in the City website!
