High Quality Research
In the RAE2008 Research Assessment Exercise the Lancaster Physics Department achieved the highest quality profile amongst the 42 UK physics departments making submissions
Diversity in Physics
Physics at Lancaster is seeking Juno Champion status, under an Institute of Physics programme designed to advance women’s careers in physics higher education.
We're keen to develop partnerships with schools to inspire school students to continue studying Physics to a higher level.

C1 Physics Building
Nanotubes are attractive materials for electron spin qubits because they can be made free of hyperfine dephasing and because spin-orbit interaction offers a route to all-electrical spin control. I will describe the first qubit in this material, the valley-spin qubit. The qubit is controlled by exploiting spin-orbit coupling in a bent nanotube and read out electrically using a generalization of Pauli blockade in a double quantum dot. I will also discuss prospects for studying spin-phonon...
