Quantum Sensors group members participated in the Electronics & Nanoscale Engineering Division Away Day, held on 18th June at The Lighthouse in the centre of Glasgow.  Well done to all PhD students who gave talks and especially Koran Jackson who won a prize!


Very pleased to welcome colleagues and visitors to our labs for the School of Engineering Open Doors Day!

We are pleased to host two distinguished visitors from Japan this week!

Left: Professor Akira Fujimaki  from the University of Nagoya gave a fascinating overview of superconducting digital electronics in his seminar on Monday.

Right: Dr Mastaka Ohkubo of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) at Tsukuba visited us today and shared his expert knowledge of superconducting detectors for mass spectrometry.   He was impressed to see our miniature 4 K cooler demonstrator!

We are pleased to welcome three new members to the Quantum Sensors Group.

Koran Jackson is starting his PhD under the supervision of Dr Alessandro Casaburi, investigating innovative RF readout schemes for superconducting detector arrays.

Dr Jharna Paul has recently completed a Daphne Jackson Fellowship in nanophotonic devices.   She is joins our effort in fabrication of quantum photonic circuits in support of a major EPSRC programme grant in collaboration with the University of Bristol.

Gregor Taylor has returned to the University after several successful years with Leonardo in Edinburgh.  He will undertake PhD research under the supervision of Professor Robert Hadfield.  He will develop next generation superconducting detectors for mid-infrared single photon detection.
