The Centre for Quantum Dynamics undertakes experimental and theoretical studies of the behaviour and properties of physical systems governed by quantum mechanics. The Centre is particularly strong in fostering collaboration between different research areas, both theoretical and experimental.
The main areas of research in the Centre are:
- Quantum Information Processing Laboratories
- Quantum optics and information, ion-trap quantum computing, integrated quantum photonics.
- Ultrafast (Attosecond) Science
- Attosecond light pulse generation, electron motion in exotic atoms and molecules, and precision measurement of attosecond-scale dynamics.
- Quantum Biophysics
- Quantum molecular biophysics, and quantum dots for biosensing.
- Quantum Foundations, Information, and Control Theory
- Quantum information theory, quantum measurement and control theory, foundations and extensions of quantum theory, quantum thermodynamics.
The Centre pursues leading edge research and provides an exciting environment for the training of research higher degree (eg. PhD) honours and capable undergraduate students. Research in quantum physics at Griffith University is above or well-above world standard, according to the outcomes of the Australian Government’s recent assessments of Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA).
The Centre for Quantum Dynamics is well known in the international research community. It has close ties with other physical and biomedical scientists at Griffith University, and with many other Australian universities and with overseas institutions. Our staff and students are of many nationalities, and our graduates are now working across the world.
Fully funded scholarships (covering tuition fees and living allowances) are available for suitably qualified graduates, domestic or international. A minimum requirement for PhD is the equivalent of a first-class honours degree with a research component amounting to at least one semester of full-time study. For full details regarding admission requirements please visit http://www.griffith.edu.au/higher-degrees-research
Interested graduates should begin by contacting potential supervisors about projects after consulting the CQD website
These scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis and applications should be submitted through the Higher Degree Research Student Centre
Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
