Recent theoretical and experimental advances mean that we are now able to exert an extraordinary degree of control over individual quantum systems and to prepare and manipulate groups of interacting quantum systems deterministically.
Bringing these techniques to bear upon both fundamental physics and a new swathe of technologies dependent on strange quantum phenomena defines the emerging field of controlled quantum dynamics.
A CDT normally takes 4 years to complete. We accept around 10 CDTstudents each year in each CDT group. Please see the EPSRC website to check your eligibility for these.If you are not eligible for EPSRC funding, there are some scholarships available for UK, EU and overseas students through Imperial College. Applications for these are made in the same way via the Postgraduate Prospectus; please check the scholarships page at http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/registry/studentfinancialsupport/pgscholarships for deadlines.
Value of Scholarship(s)
To be eligible for a full award (stipend and fees): A student must have:■Settled status in the UK, meaning they have no restrictions on how long they can stay and ■Been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the grant. This means they must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences) and ■Not been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education. (This does not apply to UK or EU nationals)
