Muhammad is a postgraduate student at the University of Queensland currently undertaking a PhD with Associate Professor Warwick Bowen

The aim of his project is to build quantum enhanced optical tweezers to trap, track and record the 3D motion of micro/nano particles beyond quantum noise limit and approaching the standard quantum limit.

Muhammad hopes this microscope will help to understand the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution of Brownian particle in viscous fluid. It will also determine the shot-noise limited localized changes in the viscosity of fluid (particularly cell’s cytoplasm) at highest ever possible bandwidth i.e. MHz bandwidth.

Qualifications: 
MSc (Information and Mechatronics)
BSc (Mechatronics and Control Engineering)
