Measuring the distance to faraway objects, and building depth profiles of them, with low, eye‑safe levels of optical power.
Securing private communications and verifying message authenticities with quantum mechanics.
Accurately and efficiently measuring the smallest possible unit of light. We develop novel detectors for use with telecommunications wavelengths.
Along with our research partners we investigate time‑correlated photon‑counting technology and applications. The group is actively pursuing research in photon‑counting detectors, especially at wavelengths > 1000 nm.
The Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences (IPaQS) carries out broad range of world‑leading research in photonic physics, engineering photonics and quantum sciences.
