On-chip quantum photonics

We investigate new device architectures to enhance the light-matter interaction on a chip, based on photonic crystal and plasmonic resonators, with the aim of guiding, trapping and manipulating quantum light.


hybrid quantum photonics

We explore the integration of different material systems to add functionalities to quantum photonic devices and improve the degree of control of light emission and propagation for quantum communication applications.


disordered photonics

We study how disorder in nanophotonic devices can be used to enhance the light-matter interaction, study fundamental physics phenomena, like Anderson localisation, and realise scalable photonic devices.


quantum biology

By integrating bio-molecules within engineered nanophotonic devices, we investigate the fundamental properties of light-harvesting complexes to understand the potential role of quantum effects in the way biological systems function.
