Group Leaders

igor       milosIgor Aharonovich and Milos Toth are combining efforts to deliver sustainable quantum technologies to our daily life. The group explores novel single photon emitters in wide band gap materials and advanced non conventional nanofabrication techniques to build a new generation of sensors and devices.
There is a close collaboration with Mike Ford and Jeff Reimers on quantum simulations, Charlene Lobo on electron beam etching, Matt Phillips on cathodoluminescence, and collaborating with Dr Olga Shimoni on fluorescent nanoparticles.
We also started a new collaborative work on integrated nanophotonics with Dr Alex Solntsev.
