Latest Developments

BQIT:15: 15th - 17th April saw 95 academics and leading members of industry from around the globe joining us in Bristol for the Bristol Quantum Information Technologies Workshop 2015. The programme included talks by members of Google, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard with discussion leaders from GCHQ, Nokia Research, ID Qunatique, EPSRC and Nature to name a few. 
The meeting proved to be a great success and we are pleased to inform you that BQIT:16 will take place from the 6th - 8th April 2016. 


Bristol Quantum Engineering Technology (QET) Labs 

We are pleased to ​launch our new state-of-the-art QET Labs. They will provide unique world-leading facilities ​to​ bring together industrial and academic collaborators to develop quantum technologies.

Royal Society Fellowship Success

We are pleased to announce that Prof. John Rarity have been awarded a prestigious Royal Society fellowship. He joins an elite network of 1,400 outstanding fellows across science, medicine and engineering to receive this award.  

IUPAP Award for Dr Mark Thompson
The IUPAP Commission 17 - Laser Physics and Photonics - has awarded Dr Mark Thompson of the Centre for Quantum Photonics a Young Scientist Prize for outstanding contributions of an applied nature. 

Quantum teleportation on a chip

The core circuits of quantum teleportation, have been successfully integrated into a photonic chip by researchers from CQP and Universities of Tokyo, Southampton and NTT Device Technology Laboratories.

Prof. O'Brien lectures at New Scientist University on the Quantum World
The New Scientst held an all day event to teach the general public about the Quantum World. Prof. Jeremy O'Brien was invited to talk about how quantum physics can be used to create Quantum Technologies.

Sharing the wonder of light with Future Brunels
As part of the SS Great Britain Trust’s "Future Brunels" programme, a group of eleven Year 9 students visited CQP and NSQI to witness demonstrations about fundamental phenomena observed in light.

Characterizing an entangled-photon source with classical detectors and measurements
A group of researchers from University of Toronto have experimentally implemented a new protocol “stimulated-emission tomography.”  The article includes previous research undertaken by CQP's Dr Dylan Mahler.


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 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:

Gerardo Villarreal Garcia - PhD student
I’m a  2nd year PhD student, graduated as a physical engineer from Tecnologico de Monterrey (ITESM) in Mexico. I joined the group in 2013 after finishing my master in ultra short pulsed lasers in the University of Salamanca, in Spain.

I’m currently working on integrated superconducting single-photon detectors on silicon platform, however my interests also include nonlinear effects in silicon photonic structures, specially at cryogenic temperatures.

I am a keen communicator of science and I am involved in many outreach activities with CQP and BOSS and helped to organise the recent Future Brunels demonstrations within CQP. 

Among my hobbies I could mention sightseeing, photography and hiking when the weather allows it. I also enjoy dancing, especially salsa, bachata and merengue.

Did you know...?

Bristol was named ’England’s first cycling city’ and is home to the sustainable charity Sustrans. It has numerous urban cycle routes as well as many links to the national Cycle network and there has been a significant increase in cycling by as much as 21% in the last two years.
