Royal Society Fellowship awarded to Dr Robert Young
We are delighted to announce that Dr Robert Young has been awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in the Physics Department at Lancaster University starting 1st October 2012.
His project is "GaSb quantum dots for a room-temperature light-matter interface"
Individual quantum dots will be used to controllably convert quantum states of light to quantum states of matter, and vice versa. Devices based on this technology will form the building blocks of quantum networks, and the long term aim of this fellowship is to create a quantum internet, which is capable of sharing information encoded on single quantum states between remote parties. A new paradigm of information technology is approaching that will share and process quantum information, and this could have as large an impact on our lives as the digital information revolution did.
