The CQNE at The University of Nottingham is a focal point for fundamental and theoretical research in the dynamics and control of complex quantum systems.
The aim of the Centre is to provide a framework for common activities such as seminars, workshops, international conferences, and specialised postgraduate training.
The Centre is open to academic members of the University conducting research in related areas.
The Centre is a joint effort between the Schools of Physics & Astronomy and Mathematical Sciences that combines our expertise in the theoretical physics and mathematics of far-from-equilibrium quantum systems, with applications in quantum information, quantum metrology, condensed matter and hybrid systems.

We regularly offer PhD projects jointly supervised by members of the Centre. For enquires please email us
