Quantum Optical Materials and Systems (QOMS) is an experimental research group with a broad research portfolio on quantum science and applications using solid-state light-matter interfaces. It was founded in 2007 as part of the AMOP Group of the Cavendish Laboratory and QOMS is an active contributor to three of the departmental research themes, namely Quantum Devices & Measurements, Emergent Quantum Phenomena, and Functional Nanosystems. The research team of QOMS comprises highly talented researchers and students with a diverse background and training.
