IOP Teacher CPD Webinar with Lancaster Physics Researchers: Atomic Clocks in your smart phone plus the building blocks for quantum computers:Recent Highlights from Lancaster’s Quantum Technology Centre
Tuesday 30 June 16.00

Dr Edward Laird: Lecturer in Experimental Condensed Matter Physic
Keeping time with nature’s atom trap
“Atomic clocks are important for our GPS system. Dr Edward Laird explains how his device could fit into a mobile phone!”

Dr Mike Thompson: Lecturer in Experimental Condensed Matter Physic
Building low-temperature electronics using 2D materials.
“Two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, have advantages over existing semiconductor technologies that will allow us to build low-temperature electronics to enhance the performance of cryogenic quantum technologies such as quantum computing.”

Organised by Phil Furneaux: IOP
Dr Edward Laird: Atomic Clocks Embedded into your Smart Phone
Mike Thompson: Electronics for Quantum Computing

Lancaster QTC’s unique expertise and world-class facilities allow quantum technologies to be used in new products and processes to revolutionise electronics, medicine, energy and computing. In this session teachers will have the opportunity to find out about the current research happening at the Centre and how this can be applied to the key stage 5 physics syllabus.
