I was at the Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) in Ventura,CA, presenting our latest work demonstrating an underdamped stochastic heat engine. The T-dS diagram demonstrates a full engine cycle for the underdamped oscillator Schematic of the Stirling Engine Cycle we implemented These are hot-out of the oven results from the Millen Lab - so watch this … Continue reading Presenting at GRS: Towards an efficient underdamped heat engine
Check out our new ArXiv pre-print on detecting levitated microspheres using event based cameras. Abstract. Event-based imaging is a neurmorphic detection technique whereby an array of pixels detects a positive or negative change in light intensity at each pixel, and is hence particularly well suited to detecting motion. As compared to standard camera technology, an … Continue reading Event-Based Imaging of Levitated Microparticles
What do you do when you have an physicist visit the lab for a week? Well you do an intense marathon of solving a single-problem together. Ruvi with his excellent programming skills and interest in instrument control, coupled with our current project of developing Event-Based imaging capability - well, we decided to work through the … Continue reading A week with Ruvi Lecamwasam
I had the pleasure of being part of the UniKORN committee that organised a panel discussion last week on the question of optomechanical interfaces as a tool to test Quantum Mechanics & Gravity. For over a century, physicists have grappled with the apparent conflict between Gravity and Quantum mechanics. Specifically, our inability to come up … Continue reading Optomechanical interfaces of Quantum Mechanics & Gravity
After more than 3 months of separation I am reunited with The Ion Trap. I would give it a hug if it was appropriate... Great work by James and Katie for trapping the particle. Now i get to play with it... what to do? Hhhmmm...Ah yes! calibrate🤔
I have been deeply honoured to be accepted to attend the Lindau Online Science Days 2020; alongside hundreds of talented scientists and economists from around the world. Check out the imppressive and aspirational aims of Lindau below on their website.

With evergrowing responsibilities and evergrowing interests, as well as upon the advice of numerous people, I have decided to maintain a website whereby I can promote the very exciting research and activities I happen to be part of.
