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.

New genetic algorithm to map the ‘edge of reality’ published in Physical Review A

Australian and German researchers have collaborated to develop a genetic algorithm to confirm the rejection of classical notions of causality.

RMIT’s Dr Alberto Peruzzo said: “Bell’s theorem excludes classical concepts of causality and is now a cornerstone of modern physics.

“But despite the fundamental importance of this theorem, only recently was the first ‘loophole-free’ experiment reported which convincingly verified that we must reject classical notions of causality.
