The research of the Atomic, Mesoscopic and Optical Physics Group (AMOP) is centred on the development of understanding of quantum aspects of condensed matter, from atomic Bose-Einstein condensates to semiconductor quantum dots. The group has a high turnover of projects and experiments, in response to the rapid advances in these areas.
The group has four subgroups, each led by a different group member:
- Quantum gases and collective phenomena
superfluidity, quantum magnetism, two-dimensional systems, non-equilibrium phenomena.
- Quantum optics and mesoscopic systems
quantum dot spins, cavity QED, plasmonics and diamond colour centres.
- Quantum Optoelectronics
Quantum dot spins, polymer semiconductors, coherence in semiconductors.
- Many-body Quantum Dynamics
Quantum gases in optical lattices, out-of-equilibrium dynamics, quantum thermodynamics
