Daniel Maxwell

Senior Research Scientist

Daniel received his PhD from Durham University in 2013 studying photon storage in an ultracold Rydberg gas.  

After his PhD Daniel was stationed at CERN while working as a postdoctoral researcher for Swansea University, where he worked on the synthesis and spectroscopy of antihydrogen atoms.  

Daniel joined NPL in 2021 as a Senior Research Scientist in the ion microtraps team, where he is working on the test and evaluation of three-dimensional ion traps to be used for quantum information processing and metrology.  

Areas of Interest 

  • Ion microtraps for quantum technologies 
  • Scalability of ion microtraps for quantum information processing
