MSc(Res) Quantum Photonics and Nanomaterials

University of Sheffield Department of Physics and Astronomy

Full time September MRes One year

About the course

Quantum information and nanotechnology promise to revolutionise the modern world: from quantum computers that can solve complex problems much faster than classical computers, to two-dimensional materials that can pack circuitry into the smallest electrical and optical devices. Physicists are paving the way for new technology that is faster, more powerful, more functional and more secure.

This one-year masters course is designed to teach you the concepts behind the next generation of technology, and the lab skills that will help to make it a reality. It is taught by researchers who are working on the theoretical and experimental basis of quantum information technologies, using the quantum nature of light to enable quantum information processing. The course's particular focus is on
