At the start of September 2023 we will be hosting a joint summer school and scientific meeting covering developments in single ion implantation and the applications of impurities and defects for quantum technologies.


  • Development single ion implantation capabilities
  • Colour centre complexes in optoelectronic materials
  • Rare earth transition metal impurities in insulators
  • Donor spin qubits in semiconductors
  • Emerging quantum technology applications

Summer School

A two-day summer school taking place on the 4th-5th September aimed at PhD students and early career researchers (post-docs). Providing a taught programme and hands-on practicals covering single ion beam technologies and the applications of impurities and defects in the solid-state.
The summer school will include session delivered by invited international experts in the field.
International and UK travel bursaries will be available.

The deadline to submit your application is 1st May 2023.

Scientific Meeting

The summer school will be followed by a two and a half day meeting on the 6th-8th September with talks and poster sessions covering all topics associated with the development of single ion implantation capabilities and quantum technology applications of impurities and defects in the solid-state. This meeting will be open to all researchers working in the field, from all career stages.

Registration opening soon
