  • Prof. Huntington's research interest is in the area of experimental quantum optics, specialising in high-speed measurement, control and generation of non-classical states for quantum technological applications. Non-classical states are used as an input to a variety of quantum technologies and, as such, the ability to make, measure, and manipulate such states with high precision and at high speeds is crucial. Prof Huntington is the author of several research publications and patents in this area.
