Alex Clark received an MSc Degree in Physics from the University of Bristol in 2005 and in 2011 received his PhD degree in quantum photonics from the Centre for Quantum Photonics, also at the University of Bristol, UK.
He was engaged in many projects in the Centre for Quantum Photonics through his years there, most notably his work with photonic crystal fibres to generate photons in a variety of quantum states, the demonstration of a quantum controlled-NOT gate in optical fibre and the creation of multi-qubit cluster states using fibre devices. He has had successful collaborations with a number of other institutions including the University of Bath, Imperial College London and the University of Nice. His research has been published in a number of journals and he has presented his work at many international conferences on a variety of subjects. Alex is a member of the Insitute of Physics and of the Optical Society of America. His current research interests lie in the integration of photon sources and entanglement on chip, the building of cluster states in integrated architectures and the use of novel materials to generate, manipulate and process quantum information.
Dr. Clark was awarded a Worldwide Universities Network Researcher Mobility Award in February 2011 and joined the CUDOS group at the University of Sydney, Australia in October 2011. He has since been building on the newly formed Quantum Photonics project and is a senior member of the Nonlinear Quantum Photonics group at the University of Sydney.
