Research interests

PhD opportunities are available.

Quantum information science promises to revolutionise information and communications technologies via secure communication, precision measurement, and ultra-powerful simulation and computation. The realisation of these technologies will massively enhance our ability to secure and process the ever-increasing volumes of information that drives our global economy. Our research is directed towards developing new molecular qubits and linking them together to form the basic unit for a computer: a quantum gate. The programme involves the synthesis of mono- and multinuclear complexes with ligand-based unpaired spins, i.e., ligand radicals. These molecules are examined with a suite of physical techniques, including electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), magnetometry, x-ray diffraction (XRD) and absorption spectroscopy (XAS), and electrochemistry, augmented with theoretical calculations.
