About Our Group

The Quantum Systems & Devices group is a new research team within the School of Mathematical & Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex.

We are interested in using atomic gases as magnetic sensors close to various objects, such as novel advanced materials (for example, structured graphene conductors), ion channels in cells, and the human brain. According to the application area, we base our approach on both cold atom and room-temperature systems. Ultracold atomic gases are also used for the study of complex many body phenomena such as quantum phase transitions, and manipulation of low-dimensional systems both in and out of equilibrium.


In addition to fundamental research, we actively work with industry in the refinement of new sensors and quantum technologies. We are always interested in discussing new opportunities for collaboration.
