Research Interests

Hybrid quantum technologies, atomic physics, quantum optics, single photon non-linearities

Personal Statement

Jonathan Pritchard recieved his PhD from Durham University in 2011, studying cooperative optical non-linearities at the single photon level arising from strong atomic interactions. He then joined the Photonics group at the University of Strathclyde building a new apparatus for atom interferometry with a Bose-Einstein Condensate for inertial sensing. He then joined the hybrid quantum information group at the Univeristy of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013, developing a new project to trap a single atom close to a superconducting circuit for a hybrid quantum memory. Jonathan was recently awared an EPSRC Quantum Technology Fellowship in July 2015 to start a new project at the University of Strathclyde using hybrid atom-superconductor devices to develop next generation hardware for quantum networking.
