Collaborations and partnerships

Quantum Electronics and Communications

The group co-ordinates a major European network on laser imaging for early cancer detection (COST BM1205) and an international Science for Peace project for use of THz technology for security and trace gas sensing (SfP 984068). Partners include the Universities of Wurzburg, Bari, Toulouse, Porto, Technical University of Barcelona, EPFL, Delft, Queensland , Belgrade, Moscow, and companies such as Nanoplus  GmbH and CSEM.

Our recent and ongoing silicon photonics collaborators include Southampton, Glasgow and Warwick universities, Forschungszentrum Juelich, Germany, RWTH Aachen, Germany, and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland.  We also have an ongoing collaboration with Purdue University on gallium nitride nanostructures. 

Dr Razavi is a member of the EPSRC National Hub for Quantum Communications Technologies with £24M of funding. The Hub comprises 8 UK universities (Bristol, Cambridge, Heriot-Watt, Leeds, Royal Holloway, Sheffield, Strathclyde, and York), private sector companies including BT, The National Physical Laboratory and Toshiba Research Europe Ltd, and public sector bodies (Bristol City Council and the National Dark Fibre Infrastructure Service), in a unique collaboration to exploit fundamental laws of quantum physics for the development of secure communications services. 

The group is organising the next International Workshop on Computational Nanotechnology, which will be held in the English Lake District on June 6th -9th 2017.
