maser lab

Welcome to the Maser Lab at UCL

The lab is located at UCL (University College London) in the Department of Physics & Astronomy and led by Jonathan (Jon) Breeze. Our research interests span many areas of condensed matter physics and quantum information science, but our core focus is currently the development and study of room-temperature solid-state masers and cavity quantum electrodynamics.

Research Interests

  • Room-temperature solid-state masers
  • Solid-state spin-defects (qubits) such as nitrogen-vacancy (NV) defect centres in diamond and silicon vacancies in silicon carbide
  • Collective excitations e.g. magnons, phonons and plasmons
  • Cavity quantum electrodynamics (cQED): for example, strong-coupling of spin-ensembles to cavity modes
  • Metamaterials & nanophotonics
  • Electromagnetic materials: dielectrics, ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics
  • Quantum materials & Materials for quantum technology
