Biography

Elanor Huntington received her PhD in experimental quantum optics from the Australian National University in April 2000 after which she joined the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy (UNSW@ADFA).

Elanor’s most significant contributions have been to the field of experimental quantum optics. In particular, her recent work has specialised in high-speed measurement, control and generation of non-classical states. 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’s group is internationally renowned for its prowess in the generation and measurement of gigahertz-speed quantum optical states and recent experimental results include world-record-breaking optical phase measurements, measurement of an unprecedented 12 teeth in a comb of squeezing, and Australia's first heralded, time-resolved measurement of non-classical states at telecommunications wavelengths

In addition to her responsibilities as the manager of the Hybrid Photonic Qubits program in CQC2T, Elanor is the Deputy Head (Research) of the School of Engineering and Information Technology with direct responsibility for the School’s 130 research students and for fostering the research of the School’s 70 academic staff.
