Quantum Materials

The Quantum Materials and Applications (QMAPP) group focuses on cross-disciplinary research activities in quantum physics, nanotechnology and material science. With state-of-the-art facilities located at Macquarie University and CSIRO, Lindfield, we are part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS), which is a multi-institutional national centre whose mission is to study and harness the features of quantum physics for the realisation of future quantum-based technologies.


In the QMAPP group, we specifically study material systems such as nano-diamonds containing defect centres and nanoscale low-dimensional GaAs-based emitters, and explore their potential for quantum-based applications ranging from spin-based quantum information technology, to strongly coupled light-matter interfaces for non-linear quantum photonics, to high-resolution single-spin sensing both for exploring other novel quantum materials at low temperatures and for potential biomedical applications.
