Date13 September 2006
DescriptionCertificate of Election
CitationHooke Professor of Experimental Physics and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research, Academic Services and University Collections), University of Oxford
Professor Walmsley has made a number of contributions to the fields of quantum optics and ultrafast optics, including pioneering experimental work in areas as diverse as quantum state tomography and ultrashort pulse characterization. His work has had a broad impact across areas from coherent control to quantum information processing. In particular he has developed methods and concepts applying ultrashort light pulses to the study of nonclassical phenomena in both atomic and optical physics, developing widely used methods for the characterization of both quantum and classical wave fields, which have broad implications across a range of areas from dynamical spectroscopy to quantum state measurement.
