The Royal Society supports new research on Quantum Optomechanics at Royal Holloway.

The Royal Society supports new research on Quantum Optomechanics at Royal Holloway.

Description
The Royal Society, the world's oldest independent scientific academy, dedicated to promoting excellence in science, is supporting the development of an exciting new research area at Royal Holloway, on quantum optomechanics. Dr Xavier Rojas, who joined Royal Holloway as a Royal Society Research Fellow in October 2016, will be leading this new project, titled "2D phononic crystals for superfluid optomechanics in the quantum regime", supported by a grant of £150,000. This grant comes a few months after he was awarded £110,092 for an Enhancement Award to his Royal Society University Research Fellowship.
