The kick-off of a large-scale European network
for research in 'Thermodynamics in the Quantum Regime' was celebrated
in Brussels on Tues 30 April 2013. The successful proposal for one of the prestigious COST
network grants, funded by the ESF, was led by UCL's researcher Dr Janet Anders.

In a recent STFC newsletter, UK news from CERN, Dr Stephen Hogan describes how he, and a team of international collaborators are investigating the properties of antimatter. The AEGIS experiment at the Antiproton Decelerator, in CERN has been designed to exploit techniques Stephen developed to accelerate antihydrogen atoms in excited states; to transport them and make beams suitable for measurements of the acceleration of antimatter in the Earth's gravitational field.

Quantum Computers, when realized, hold the promise of speeding up the solution of certain problems perceived as difficult on a classical computer, and particularly enabling the controlled simulations of the behaviour of complex many-body quantum systems. In the foreseeable future, one expects the size of individual quantum computers to be rather limited due to fundamental obstacles, and identifying viable ways to connect and network such computers to enhance their effective computational power has a high technological incentive.
We have a wide range of research interestsed within the field of quanutm information theory, mostly falling into the following categories:
- Entanglement and quantum information
- Quantum Optics
- Quantum state transfer using spin chains
- Quantum computation using higher dimensional spins
- Quantum coherence, correlations and entanglement in photosynthetic complexes
- measurement-based quantum computation
- quantum many-body systems
