...from Quantum Information to Biophysics

School of Physics and Astronomy

The group is involved in solving challenges of Modern Theoretical Physics, ranging from Quantum Information to Biophysics. Moreover, Ben Varcoe is currently performing Quantum Information based experiments in strongly coupled cavity QED systems, as well as in more fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics. The group is currently organising one of the biggest International Quantum Information and Communication Conferences (QIPC 2015). We are also involved in two of the four UK Quantum Technology Hubs, NQIT and York.
