Welcome to the Quantum Photonics Laboratory!

We are an experimental group at RMIT University’s School of Engineering. Our research spans from engineering photonic quantum information and communication technologies to studying quantum effects in biological, chemical and physical systems.


PhD Scholarships available in the CQC2T at RMIT University

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) has PhD Scholarships available for prospective students.

Following our recent success in demonstrating high-fidelity, chip-scale optical quantum information processing, this project will extend the current capability by adding on-chip single photon emission and detection.

Candidates will have a degree in physics, material science, micro-nano technology, electronic engineering or equivalent.

New CQC2T Labs Open at RMIT University

The Quantum Photonics Laboratory has joined the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T)

CQC2T is a research partnership between groups across Australia. The Centre is funded for 7 years to develop novel quantum technology.

New laboratories have been in preparation for the past year at RMIT University. Alberto Peruzzo will direct this node of the Centre with focus on developing photonics quantum technology.

The new research facility includes; quantum optics laboratories for single photon experiments; a wet lab with fume hoods, sample preparation tools and a dicing saw; prototyping laboratories; and a cryogenic laboratory with a 1 Kelvin cryostat.


Congratulations Rob on Graduating!

Quantum Photonics Laboratory student Robert Chapman has Graduated his PhD!

Rob has been working in the Quantum Photonics Laboratory since it’s formation in 2013.

During his PhD, Rob has published first-author papers in Nature CommunicationsPhysical Review Letters, and Physical Review A.

Rob’s research focuses on algorithms and protocols for quantum information technology and performing photonic proof-of-concept experiments.

He is now working as a Postdoctoral Research Officer in the Quantum Photonics Lab.
