Postgraduate Research Symposium – Reece Jones

On Friday 30th September the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln hosted our first ever PGR symposium event. We invited alumni who are currently PGR students at other institutions to give a short (10-15 minute) presentation about their research projects alongside some of our own PhD students. 

The sixth speaker was Reece Jones, who has just finished his first year studying for a PhD at the University of Strathclyde (joint appointment with NPL). His research is on the development of quantum devices based on silicon carbide (SiC).

In his talk, Reece started by introducing the abstract concept of a quantum bit – a qubit – and discussing the various possible realisations. He then proceeded to discuss the particular case of silicon vacancies in SiC, and how they can be identified using photoluminescence spectroscopy.

What is a quibt?
