Quantum Matter Research

We're interested in the theoretical study and modelling of the quantum properties of matter and light - from the fundamental to the technological.

A quantum era

We live in a quantum era, where the quantum mechanical properties of matter and light are probed and tested to unprecedented levels. They're exploited into quantum technologies such as precision sensors and quantum computers.

The quantum matter research group covers a range of different topics:

  • Bose-Einstein condensation
  • quantum fluids
  • ultracold gases
  • superfluid liquid helium
  • exciton-polariton condensates
  • solitons, vortices and turbulence
  • light-matter interaction
  • quantum optics
  • fundamentals of quantum mechanics
  • quantum transport

We collaborate with leading experimental and theoretical experts worldwide. 

We are also a part of the Joint Quantum Centre Durham-Newcastle.
