Opto-Mechanics PhD Scholarship:

PhD theory project in the application of opto-mechanics to fundamental physics

This project provides the theoretical framework for experiments in opto-mechanics that might address open questions in fundamental quantum physics, including: the measurement problem and the treatment of gravity.

Opto-mechanical systems may operate in regimes for which macroscopic objects are quantum mechanical. This opens up the quantum-classical interface to experimental scrutiny. We aim to test theories of quantum measurement,  such as spontaneous localization models. We shall also test theories of gravitational quantum mechanics, such as semi-classical gravity.



Summer Scholarships

If you have a passion for applied quantum mechanics and would like to play in our labs at ANU over the summer, we are offering a limited number of summer scholarships.
