Unique inter-departmental project begins

Posted: 22nd June 2011

A large inter-departmental project, unique in its kind, entitled: 'Quantum Nanoscience: Fundamental Physics, Emerging Structures, and Implications for our Ultimate Reality' has started.

The project involves staff from departments including: Computer Science (Principle Investigator (PI) Bob Coecke, Research Assistant (RA) Jamie Vicary), Philosophy (PI Chris Timpson, RA Owen Maroney), Materials (on the experiment side: PI Andrew Briggs, with the RA to be confirmed; and on the theory side: PI Simon Benjamin, RA Erik Gauger) and Physics (Vlatko Vedral, Dieter Jaksch).

The project is jointly funded by the Center for Quantum Technologies in Singapore and the John Templeton Foundation.
