The Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory led by Associate Professor Warwick Bowen is part of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS).


Our lab undertakes research in both fundamental tests of quantum mechanics and advanced quantum technologies with future applications in metrology, communication, and computation. This research is primarily based around optical architectures integrated onto silicon chips compatible with current-day fiber optic systems. These architectures provide a test-bed from which we can study a wide range of quantum processes including quantum entanglement and non-locality, the interaction of single photons with single atoms, and quantum optomechanical systems. The robustness and scalability of the systems we study offers potential for the investigation of large-scale quantum systems and phenomena. You can visit our research page for more details on the research activities of our group.
