RESEARCH FUNDING


Profile: Mark J. Holmes, DPhil


Mark Holmes completed his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in physics at the University of Oxford, and since obtaining his DPhil has been based at the University of Tokyo, Japan. His current research interests are focused on the isolation of individual quantum states/transitions and the generation of single photons at elevated temperatures for the development of solid-state quantum information technologies. With a keen interest in the physics of nano-scale systems, his other scientific studies involve the evaluation of the optoelectronic properties of nanostructures of various exciting material systems (III-nitrides, ZnO, Carbon nanotubes etc).
