Quantum Photonics and Nanomaterials MSc(Res)

On this course, you'll be taught by researchers who are working on the theoretical and experimental basis of quantum information technologies, using the quantum nature of light to enable quantum information processing.

The course's particular focus is on developing novel semiconductor photonic nanostructures and 2D materials, such as graphene derived from bulk van der Waals materials, that could dramatically alter the optical and electronics industries. You'll study electromagnetism, optics, solid state physics and semiconductors at an advanced level, so that you understand the physical principles behind the latest technology.

This is a research-based degree, so you will also spend around half your time on your own research project, working alongside experts here in Sheffield.

The advanced topics covered and the extensive research training make this degree programme great preparation for a PhD. The specialist knowledge you'll gain can also be applied in the computing, electronics and telecommunications industries.
