Representatives from the SPANGL4Q team include coordinator Dr Ruth Oulton attended OECS 2015 in Jerusalem, Israel.
July 2015 - Specialist workshop at ICTON2015
Representatives from the SPANGL4Q team organised and presented a specialist workshop at international conference ICTON 2015 in Budapest
ICTON (the International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks) is a long-standing international conference that covers a wide range of topics on optical devices and communication systems, and has approximately 500 delegates. We chose ICTON as it is well attended by both optical device physicists and communications engineers, which gave us a good opportunity, both to provide some background information to a wide range of optical engineers and physicists via tutorials in the morning session, and to specialists via the SPANGL4Q special session in the afternoon.
Dr Hamish McAlpine has joined the University of Bristol and SPANGL4Q as Project Manager, replacing Binah Shah. Welcome Hamish!
The UNIVBRIS SPANGL4Q team were visited by a delegation from the European Commission to showcase their research. This included EU Commissioner for Research Innovation and Science, Maire Geogeghan-Quinn, and Sir Graham Watson MEP for Southwest England and Gibralter.
Dr Ruth Oulton talks to The Guardian newspaper in the UK about what makes quantum computing so special.
A team from the University of Bristol has visited our new partner at St. Petersburg State University and our exiting partner at the Institute for Solid State Physics, Chernogolovka.
Ruth Oulton and Martin Lopez-Garcia attended the "Complex Nanophotonics Science Camp" in Windsor to present work on SPANGL4Q. Dr. Oulton's talk won a prize in the meeting for the consortium's work.
Jari Lindberg has joined Bristol to work with the consortium to study the theory of angular momentum and light-matter coupling in nanophotonic structures.
Work arising from a collaboration between Bristol and AMOLF was awarded first prize in the poster competition at the International Conference on Orbital Angular Momentum.
