About this course

This specialist course offers a unique opportunity to advance our understanding of nanoscience, photonics and quantum physics through your own experimental physics research. These closely related fields have the power to change our world - from tackling climate change to saving lives through quantum computing.

We offer this flagship course to the best students on these degrees:

You’ll work alongside professional researchers in our highly regarded Quantum, Light and Matter research group based in our materials and photonics labs.

Previous projects have involved exploring the properties of carbon nanotubes and optimising holograms for use in quantum computing.

During your year in research you’ll have access to specialist facilities such as:

  • the Nanomaterials Rapid Prototyping facility, for building and testing nanodevices

  • a photonics lab with the latest laser equipment

  • a cleanroom complex for fabrication at the atomic level

  • one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers

This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics.
