Welcome to Travis Nicholson’s group. We specialize in experimental physics with ultracold quantum matter and highly coherent lasers. Our research probes the quantum nature of reality to realize better quantum computers, novel quantum simulators, and new approaches to quantum metrology.

We are located in the vibrant and prosperous city of Singapore at the Centre for Quantum Technologies. Named one of Singapore’s research centres of excellence, the CQT is part of the National University of Singapore, which is consistently ranked the top university in Asia and among the top 20 universities globally.

Here you can learn more about our research and our team. Also, if you have a passion for physics and an interest in joining our group, please look at our page on applying to become a member of our team.
