September 2019 -

Dr Alessia Pasquazi of our Emergent Photonics Lab has been awarded the 2019 ERC Starting Grant for her work on Temporal Laser cavity-Solitons for micro-resonator based optical frequency combs.

July 2019 -

Dr Seokjun Hong has collaborated with Professor Rainer Blatt of University of Innsbruck, and Professor Dan Cho from Seoul National University. Their paper,  MEMS-based design of a high-finesse fiber cavity integrated with an ion trap, designed MEMS based microstage to control the fiber mirrors for an ion-cavity system.

June 2019 -

Raphaël Le Brun-Ricalens, doctoral researcher and PhD student in our Ion Quantum Technology Group, is featured in the Luxembourg National Research Fund's Spotlight on Young Researchers. He explains why he has joined the field at such an exciting time, why his Masters degree at Sussex got him hooked to enrol on our doctoral programme, and his future careers aspirations Spotlight on Young Researchers: Foni Raphaël Lebrun-Ricalens.
