The ANU quantum information group have been working on many varied projects. We are a small experimental group led by Syed Assad and Ping Koy Lam. Mostly, we use lasers to create continuous vari...

Graphene is undoubtedly the most famous of 2D materials, but it far from the only one. There are many other materials that have interesting properties when we are able to produce atomically thin laye...

We operate a source of quantum random numbers in our lab. The numbers are generated from the quantum vacuum fluctuations measured using balanced homodyne detection.

To access the random numbers you...

Normal, classical optical signals are carried by changing the amplitude of the light and the signal may be detected simply with a photodetector. In this case a piece of paper, or a computer hard-drive...

Light carries momentum. When light is reflected or absorbed, the change in momentum results into the exertion of a pressure on the incident surface, known as radiation pressure. An optical cavity can...
