# Welcome

Welcome to the web of the Wolverhampton Light & Matter (WLM) group, at the University of Wolverhampton, West Midlands, UK.

We are still a young group (born on January 6, 2017; 2150 days ago) but moving fast (see our News).

We are a theoretical groups working in various areas of quantum optics, condensed-matter physics and topological physics (see our Research). Our group is composed of a Full-Professor, two Lecturers, a Teaching Associate and two PhD students, as well as interns on a come-and-go basis.

We aim to make Wolverhampton a UK spot of excellence in the Physics of light-matter interactions. As a tribute to this, our logo features the $n$-dimensional hyperplanes of photon-leapfrog correlations reported in our first work fully produced in Wolverhampton [1]. If you are in the photonics business, it's probably a good bet to turn to us (see how to Contact us).

We also are the core of the Physics course at the UoW, that will open September 2017. We are keen to get in touch with both teachers of Physics and develop collaborations on STEM and Physics activities (see our outreach events), as well as prospective applicants, who want to be actors more than spectators of their University formation. Our courses will feature research-based teaching, that will be monitored for its pedagogical values as part of our Physics Education Research activities. This will be a once in a lifetime event, starting a Physics branch. We are looking forward powering the University with the very best of higher education, the one you don't get anymore in most prestigious Universities because they eventually turn into an incoherent agglomerate of brilliant people who mind their own research and activities, losing grasp of the bigger picture. We start from zero, so everything has been rethought, reviewed, reconsidered and we are in a unique position to bring students right to the edge of where technology is demanding to be pushed forward, based on brand new designed laboratory sessions and fresh, state-of-the-art module contents, in sync with what the best applied physics is about today. If you want to literally build your Alma Matter, come to us, or, rather, come with us! You will never have this chance again to be the first students of a course that we promise will be heard of.

We have a twitter-feed, @PhysWlv, which you are welcome to follow!

We hope that visiting the rest of this place, you will want to get in touch and build the rest of it with us: F.Laussy@wlv.ac.uk. Velle est posse.
