New grant from Lancaster

Our research programme has been selected for an equipment grant from the Faculty of Science and Technology at Lancaster University. This investment is a great start for the group, and will let us buy a state-of-the-art vector signal generator for manipulating quantum states.

Accepted in PRX: Displacemon electromechanics

Our paper Displacemon electromechanics: How to detect quantum interference in a nanomechanical resonator has been accepted by Physical Review X. This is our first paper from Lancaster! To predict the behaviour of small particles, for example electrons moving through a semiconductor, it is essential to use the concept of quantum superposition—objects may traverse multiple paths simultaneously.…
