Our latest results

The ion trap team demonstrated the first 3D force sensor based on the high resolution imaging of a single ions. In this experiment we use the high resolution imaging system of our trap to measure ion displacements of few nanometres. For more information about this experiment watch the video made by our team.

The waveguide team demonstrated a new protocol for the characterization of nonlinear multimode devices. Together with collaborators from ANU and UTS we showed how complex devices can be characterized using only lasers and photodiodes. Watch our graduate students Paul and Matteo talking about this experiment.
