Dr Adetunmise Dada

  • Research Associate (Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering)

Biography

Adetunmise Dada is a postdoctoral researcher in the Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics Research Group, School of Engineering, University of Glasgow.  His past roles include Senior Research Associate within the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (2016-2019) at the University of Bristol, and Research Associate in the Quantum Photonics Laboratory at Heriot-Watt University (2013 - 2016).

His background (PhD) is in experimental quantum optics, quantum signal detection, and high-dimensional quantum information. He has over 7 years of postdoctoral research experience in experimental quantum photonics engineering using quantum-dot-based on-demand single-photon sources as well as parametric sources of photon pairs.

 

Research interests

  • Quantum Optics & Quantum Information: Engineering novel sources of quantum states of light using both free space and integrated photonics, and development of novel implementations of quantum communication protocols.
  • Quantum Measurements & Metrology: Design and development of measurement schemes for quantum states of light and their application to novel quantum metrology tasks.
  • Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Quantum Optics and Terahertz Photonics: Quantum optics communication in SWIR domain to enable daylight quantum communication; study of matter-mediated interaction between terahertz fields and quantum light.
