Invited APS Physics Viewpoint on Scalable Imaging of Superresolution

Jonathan Matthews, CQP, was invited to give his Viewpoint, on an article by researchers at University of Toronto on  Scalable Imaging of Superresolution. The viewpoint was published by APS Physics. 

Google Tech Talk

Professor Jeremy O'Brien was recently asked to present a talk on Quantum Technologies at Google LA, you can view the entire talk on our newsfeed. 

The Great Physics Bake Off

Congratulations to Sebastian Knaur from CQP who won the University of Bristol Physics Bake Off for his World Cup Cake! Well done to Nick Russell and Dr JP Hadden also from CQP who won the People's Choice as their cakes where in the first three to sell out. 

Skirting Science

Members of the CQP outreach team travelled to Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College in Weston Super Mare to present at Skirting Science. The team led by Lizzy Hemsley presented a practical demonstration of QKD using twitter to encourage year 9 girls to take Physics. 

Researcher to Innovator Course with SetSquared

Dr Chris Erven and PhD student Javier Sabines, have been selected to join SETsquared's prestigious "Researcher to Innovator Programme" which trains leading academic researchers to become successful innovators capable of commercialising their ideas and expertise.

Graduation Congratulations!

Congratulations to Kostas Poulios, Richard Nock, Xiao Ai, Bryn Bell and David Lowndes who will receive their PhDs at their graduation ceremonies in the next few weeks.



Postdoctoral Research Assistant/Associate: We are currently recruiting an experimentalist with a strong background in quantum optics and quantum metrology. Some experience with theoretical discrete and continuous variables quantum optics would also be ideal.

For more details about this position please go to the careers page on our website.



We currently have PhD opportunities in experimental and theoretical quantum optics. These 4 year studentships are available as part of a U.S. Army Research Office Grant  for quantum characterisation, verification, and validation (QCVV). For more details please visit our Opportunities page or to register your interest please submit your CV and a Covering letter to: with the subject line 'ARO studentship application'

We are still looking for an Engineer to complete their studentship with our Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training. Please go to our website for more details.

About Me

Lizzy Hemsley: 

Lizzy is a second year PhD student at the Centre for Quantum Photonics. Her research is focused on developing one of the fundamental building blocks necessary to construct an optical quantum computer: a single-photon source. 

Doing a PhD at CQP isn’t all about being stuck in a dark lab counting single photons, recently Lizzy got involved with one of the many public-outreach activities  organised by the group. She led the demonstration at the Skirting Science Festival 2014 explaining Quantum Cryptography to a group of year 9 girls to encourage taking science at GCSE and HE. Lizzy was really pleased with how enthusiastic and receptive the audience were and hopes that some of them might be inspired to go on to study physics at University.

In her free time Lizzy enjoys running, learning Japanese, dyeing her hair outrageous colours and has a long-standing love of Game of Thrones. Despite her enthusiasm for physics, her primary passion in life remains her recently adopted cat, Hilda.
