This website is the personal homepage of the Strontium Lab (better known as the 'Strontium Clock Team') for Precision Metrology and Quantum Measurements. This lab is a part of the University of Birmingham' Cold Atoms Group and the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Timing.

Our team works on ultra cold strontium for a range of applications, from studying the fundamental interactions between ultra-cold strontium atoms, to developing compact clocks systems in our lab in collaboration with industry partners. We engage in knowledge transfer to help our industry partners to bring quantum technologies out of the lab and into the real-world applications.
