About P A Knott

I currently work at the University of Nottingham on a project entitled "Sentient observers in the quantum regime and the emergence of objective reality", with Gerardo Adesso, Marco Piani, and Tommaso Tufarelli. This project involves using quantum information theory to investigate foundational questions concerning the role of the observer in physical theories. More generally, my research interests include quantum metrology, quantum state engineering, quantum sensing networks, and optical interferometry.

Computers designing quantum optics experiments

Quantum states can exhibit bizarre but powerful properties, such as being in a superposition or containing correlations¬†not possible in classical physics. If these properties can be controlled, then they can be exploited in quantum technologies to dramatically transform computing, enable … Continue reading
