Leadership team

Professor Winfried Hensinger

Director of the Centre

Winfried Hensinger heads the Ion Quantum Technology group. His group develops quantum computers, quantum simulators and portable quantum sensors using trapped ions. The group works on the construction of a prototype quantum computer at the University of Sussex and they develop integrated ion trap microchips for quantum computers, simulators and sensors.

Professor Marco Peccianti

Marco Peccianti is working in nonlinear optics, with interests in: solitons and nonlinear wave dynamics in soft matter and integrated devices, manipulation of THz waves, and sub-wavelength micro and nano-imaging systems also based on approaches common to quantum optics. He also works on the miniaturization of optical frequency combs for the development of compact quantum atomic clocks.
