Postdoctoral researchers

Jamie Francis-Jones

jamie-francis-jonesJamie Francis-Jones received his PhD from the University of Bath in 2016 for his work on multiplexing high-purity heralded single photon sources under the supervision of Dr Peter Mosley.

As part of the Networked Quantum Information Technologies Hub, his main research areas include the design and fabrication of photonic crystal fibres (PCF) for quantum frequency translation of single photons from the visible to the infrared, and photon pair generation in PCF for use in heralded single photon sources. His other research interests include the development of field programmable gate array designs for photon counting and fast feed forward optical switching schemes.

Kristina Rusimova

Kristina obtained her PhD degree from the University of Bath in December 2016 for her work on atomic and molecular manipulation with a scanning tunnelling microscope under the supervision of Dr Peter Sloan.

Prior to coming to Bath, Kristina graduated with an MSci degree from the University of Birmingham, where she completed a yearlong project on fabricating bimetallic nanoparticles. During her time in Birmingham she was also awarded two summer studentships to work at the Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory, based at the University of Birmingham.

Kristina joined the CPPM group in January 2017 to work on three different projects all centred around the fabrication, characterisation and application of hollow core fibre for use with dense alkali metal vapours and for metrology. Her projects are funded by the Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT) Hub, Innovate UK and the Light Controlled Factory (LCF) under the leadership of Dr Peter Mosley, Dr Ventsi Valev and Prof William Wadsworth.

Gaby Slavcheva

gaby-slavchevaI joined the Physics Department of the University of Bath in 2013 as a Leverhulme Research Fellow and am currently a Visiting Research Fellow.

My research interests are in quantum optical control in solid-state systems in the context of quantum information.

Jim Stone

jim-stoneMy research interest is the use of novel optical fibre technology for applications in healthcare. Rather than using existing commercially available optical fibres (probably designed for the telecommunications industry) for healthcare applications I’m interested in designing and fabricating new optical fibres for the specific clinical task in hand. Principally through the EPSRC funded Proteus Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (IRC) our group has developed new optical fibres for use in micro-endoscopy and remote chemical sensing inside the body. Through the Proteus IRC we translate our work into the clinic as rapidly as possible ensuring the full potential clinical impact of our new optical fibre technology is felt.

Stephanos Yerolatsitis

stephanos-yerolatsitisStephanos completed his PhD at the University of Bath. During his PhD he focused on developing novel fibre devices for mode manipulation by post-processing existing optical fibres. He developed mode-selective versions of the photonic lantern. Such devices can be used in telecommunications as a way to increase the capacity of fibres by carrying independent data channels in different modes.

He is now working on a multidisciplinary project (PROTEUS) on developing devices for sensing different conditions of the distal lung of an ICU patient.

Fei Yu


Fei Yu is from mainland China. He obtained his B.Eng at Beijing Institute of Technology in 2008. Upon completion of his undergraduate course, he remained at Beijing Institute of Technology to study for his Master's degree in Physics and Electronics under the supervision of Prof. Shufen Chen.

From October 2010, he started his PhD in Optics with sponsorship from the Chinese Scholarship Council. His supervisor is Prof. Jonathan Knight. His research starts from fabricating his first Photonic Crystal Fibre.
