A collection of my most cited research papers, and a selection of my books.
Refrigeration with Indefinite Causal Orders on a Cloud Quantum Computer
We demonstrate non-classical cooling on the IBMq cloud quantum computer. We implement a recently proposed refrigeration protocol which relies upon…
Indefinite Causal Orders from Superpositions in Time
Treating the time of an event as a quantum variable, we derive a scheme in which superpositions in time are…
Perturbative quantum simulation
Approximations based on perturbation theory are the basis for most of the quantitative predictions of quantum mechanics, whether in quantum…
Optomechanical entanglement between a movable mirror and a cavity field
We show how stationary entanglement between an optical cavity field mode and a macroscopic vibrating mirror can be generated by…
Geometric quantum computation using nuclear magnetic resonance
A significant development in computing has been the discovery 1 that the computational power of quantum computers exceeds that of…
Quantum Physics and Consciousness
I know, I know. Yes, it’s a weird topic, but it has been receiving a great deal of coverage and all sorts of things have been claimed and argued. So, here is my two cents.
The Life Scientific interview on BBC Radio 4
I discuss why the Universe is a big quantum computer and why information is the basis for an ultimate theory of everything with Jim Al-Khalili on BBC Radio 4 program, The Life Scientific.
Good for Nothing Fundamental Physics
I am not religious myself, however, I do enjoy reading various religious texts. My absolute favourite is Tao Te Ching, one of the key foundational books in Taoism. Its central idea is that our lives should consist of “acts without action”, meaning that we should “live in the now” and “go with the flow”.
