Interested in joining the group?
We are building a new lab at Stellenbosch
A number of Hons, MSc and PhD projects are available:

Honours projects

  1. Photonic quantum entanglement (exp)
  2. Photonic quantum interference (exp)
  3. Plasmonic biosensing (exp)
  4. Quantum Networks (theory)
  5. Quantum Graph Theory (theory)
A bursary of R60k is available for these projects. Note that an experimental project may be reformulated into a theory project and vice versa. Contact me to discuss further if you would like to do this.

MSc projects

  1. Quantum state tomography
  2. Single-photon generation
  3. Quantum random number generation
A bursary of R90k per year (2 years) is available for these projects.

PhD projects

Please contact me to discuss PhD projects. A bursary of R120k per year (3 years) is available for these projects.
