I am a lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, based in QETlabs - the Quantum Engineering Technologies Labs - and the Photonics research group.

I work on quantum dots: nanoscale inclusions of one semiconductor embedded in another. The quantum dots - sometimes called "artificial atoms" - provide 3D confinement of the electrons and holes on a length scale of a few nanometers, leading to the formation of discrete, atom-like energy levels localized within the quantum dot. These are quite unlike the usual delocalized carriers we think about in semiconductors. These are useful for making single photon sources - the devices that will ...
