Quantum nanoPhotonics Lab



Welcome to the Quantum nanoPhotonics Laboratory webpage.

Part of the Quantum Light Matter group and the Zepler Institute at the University of Southampton, the QnP Lab is led by Dr Alberto Politi.

The group research interest is focused on the development of new platforms for quantum technologies and quantum information sciences.
