Name of Group Leader:Professor Derek Abbott
Physical Address:The University of Adelaide
Mailing Address:As Above
Nanotechnology Research Programs/Activities:There are a wide range of activities. Those that include the nanoscale are:
a) The National T-ray Facility. This includes studies of molecular dynamics at the nanoscale.
b) Quantum Computing Theory Group. Using bioinspired game-theoretic techniques we are exploring foundational issues in quantum computing such as decoherence and the search for new quantum algorithms.
Scale of Nanotechnology Research Effort:20 PhD candidates plus 10 doctoral staff.
Nanotechnology research facilities:The National T-ray Facility, is a multi-user facility with four T-ray beam lines.
These terahertz frequencies (0.1 to 10 THz) are ideal for probing molecular low frequency resonances for understanding fundamental dynamics at the nanoscale.
