Research Projects

Supervisor(s): 

Michelle Simmons
Professor Michelle Simmons is the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Quantum Computation and Communication Technology.

Supervisor(s): 

Sven Rogge
Sven Rogge's group works on quantum computation in silicon and the investigation of artificial quantum matter that exhibit highly correlated behaviour.

Supervisor(s): 

Peter Reece

In the Photonics and Optoelectronics Lab, we run a diverse range of experiments based on the development and application of advanced laser spectroscopy and microscopy techniques.

Supervisor(s): 

Alex Hamilton

Researchers within the QED group are investigating the electrical and optical properties of nanometer scale semiconductor devices. At these small length scales the device properties are no longer governed by semi-classical physics, but are instead determined by quantum mechanical effects.

Supervisor(s): 

Adam Micolich

Self-assembled nanostructures for quantum device and bioelectronics applications

Supervisor(s): 

Dane McCamey

Projects in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science will investigate excitonic materials and devices via a range of techniques, including optical and spin based spectroscopy, electrical, and optical measurem

Supervisor(s): 

Tim Duty

Measuring charge with sub-electron resolution in a solid-state device is crucial for quantum technologies and other precision measurement applications.

Supervisor(s): 

Oleg Sushkov

The CSIRO On-line Analysis (OLA) Group offers opportunities for students to undertake applied physics research projects at our Lucas Heights laboratories.

Honours projects
H1. 3D printed X-ray fluorescence analyser

Supervisor(s): 

Clemens Ulrich

Electronic correlations in transition metal oxides lead to novel properties such as high temperature superconductivity, multiferroic properties, or topologically protected spin structures.

Supervisor(s): 

Dimitrie Culcer

Holes are the absence of electrons in a semiconductor, and have very different spin properties than electrons.
