Quantum Photonics Group
Sorry, we have no News at this time.
Research in the Painter Lab looks at ways to create new optical materials and devices through the development of nano-scale fabrication techniques and through the exploration of novel physics. The type of research ranges from theory and design, to the fabrication and characterization of devices, and is naturally inter-disciplinary including fields such as quantum optics, nanomechanics, superconducting microwave circuits, and atomic physics. Currently, our research efforts can be divided into the following topical areas:
- quantum physics of mechanical devices
- hybrid superconducting quantum circuits
- optomechanical sensors
As part of our lab infrastructure we operate our own cleanroom for the in-house fabrication of devices.
