We are pleased to welcome two new members to the Quantum Sensors Group:

Konstantinos Tsmivrakidis has joined us to carry out PhD research on singlet oxygen luminescence detection with superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors.  Working with partners in Canada and the US, and supported by the European Research Council, we hope to provide accurate dosimetry for laser cancer treatment.
