(L-R) Katie, James S, James M, Yanhui & Yugang had an incredible week at their first community conference, in Benasque (Spain). James M presented the impressive results from our group, and we made many new friends and collaborators.
Jingjing Zhai has joined our team to administer our network grant LeviNet. We are very glad to have her with us!
We were happy to have Lucas Mendicino visit our group from the Quantum Foundations and Information group at the University of Buenos Aires. We put him to work on our public ion trap project, and he didn’t electrocute himself!
James gave a talk for World Quantum Day 2022 at King’s College London, setting the scene for many quantum technologists to inspire our wide audience.
We are looking for a Postdoc to work on our levitated electromechanics experiments, click here to see details and apply. We are also looking for a PhD student to work on our charged particle levitation experiment, click here to see … Continue reading
Liz & Molly have joined us as Masters’ students, and we’re very glad to have them in the team. Here we are enjoying Chinese New Year with a dumpling party.
The whole levitated Nanophysics team got together for what has become our traditional (?) Mexican (??) Christmas Lunch. Well done for getting through a tough year, team!
James attending the ever-inspiring Quantum Technologies Showcase to see what progress is being made in the UK towards the realisation of really useful quantum things!
James gave a talk at SPIE Photonex 2021. An actual talk, with real people! The topic was building MEMS devices with levitated particles.
Read all about our technique to quickly, cleanly and efficiently launching nanoparticles into optical traps. Congratulations Maryam, Yanhui & James! Direct and clean loading of nanoparticles into optical traps at millibar pressuresarXiv:2109.10316
