Personal profile

Biography

Dr Michael Tanner is an EPSRC Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration Proteus Postdoctoral Research Fellow.

 

Michael completed his PhD at Cambridge University, in the Microelectronics Research Centre, in collaboration with the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory

He continued his work as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Hitachi, investigating the excitation structure of Isolated Double Quantum Dots (IDQDs), or “artificial molecules”.

Later he expanded into the field of quantum optics, moving to Heriot-Watt University to work with Prof. Robert Hadfield on Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detectors (SNSPDs) and integrated quantum optical circuits.
Utilising skills and knowledge from his previous work while diversifying, Michael helped to guide and grow the research group moving with it to the University of Glasgow as a Research Fellow within the Quantum Sensors Group.
He developed guided mode optical circuits, fibre optic coupling of light to nanoscale systems, and time correlated single photon counting with exquisite sensing technologies.

In addition to developing cutting edge quantum optics experiments and new secure optical communication technologies, he recently applied photon counting technologies to real world sensing problems.
These include time of flight depth imaging, singlet oxygen fluorescence measurements for photodynamic therapy in cancer treatment and primary temperature measurement with optic fibre.


Michael is currently involved in the Proteus project as an EPSRC Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration Proteus Research Fellow.

With wide ranging skills in experimental systems, fibre optics, and sensing technologies Michael now leads the optical physics strand on site at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh (QMRI) within the Proteus project to optimise novel fibre probes for clinical application.
