My two MRes (Master of Research) students have submitted their theses:
- James Bainbridge worked on “Quantum control of acoustic waves”; he worked on the idea of using strain-coupled transitions in NV centres in diamond to control the dissipation and dispersion of propagating acoustic modes and cavity modes.
- Shiromal Kumara’s thesis is on “The emergence of subradiance in ensembles of quantum optical emitter”; Shiro developed a nifty little code to calculate the dissipation from specific states of small ensembles of two-level systems.
Both Shiro and James were co-supervised by Prof. Michael J. Steel.
