This website is the personal homepage of the Alkaline team (previously known as the 'Strontium Clock Team'). Our lab is associated with 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.
