Rob Kirkwood has successfully defended his PhD thesis. Congratulations!

He pioneered fabrication of superconducting detectors integrated with GaAs waveguide circuits here in Glasgow, as part of a major collaboration with the University of Sheffield.  He also completed a highly successful internship at NICT Japan.  He is starting a new position as a postdoctoral researcher at the UK National Physical laboratory, developing and benchmarking emerging technologies for quantum communications.  We wish him every success!

Quantum Sensors Group PhD student Rob Kirkwood is spending 3 months in Japan via the National Institute of Information and Communication Technology (NICT) internship programme.  Rob is hosted by Dr Shigehito Miki at NICT Kobe, and is working on fabrication and testing of next generation superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors.IMG_4186
