Bowen’s research background is in quantum optics and photonics, and particularly in the important emerging fields of quantum information science and quantum opto-mechanics. These fields rely critically on the development of new techniques to generate and control non-classical states of systems such as optical fields, atoms, and micromechanical cantilevers. Bowen is an internationally recognised expert in these areas. He has contributed both to the experimental demonstration of key technologies, and to the development of important new concepts, including the
