Research Interests

In recent years there has been remarkable experimental and
theoretical progress in the field of quantum information, which promises unprecedented capabilities in communication and computation. Quantum optics provides a succinct and timely testbed for exploring conceptual and technological issues in quantum information.

Within the broad areas of quantum information and quantum optics, my key research interests include: Production, characterisation and utilisation of arbitrary optical entangled states; effect of decoherence; quantum computation; quantum communication; tests of quantum mechanics; "interaction-free" measurements; quantum erasers.
