Photonic quantum technologies could be only light years away

Abstract:
Photonic quantum information science could soon move out of the laboratory and be used in future technologies like quantum computers thanks to a grant of over £1 million ($2 million).

The EPSRC five-year grant has been awarded to Dr Jeremy O'Brien, Reader in Research in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Department of Physics at the University of Bristol as part of the Challenging Engineering programme.
