Professor Bryan Dalton

Adjunct Professor
Ph D, Monash University, Australia; M Sc, Melbourne University, Australia; B Sc, Melbourne University, Australia


Professor Dalton has made research contributions in Quantum Optics, Molecular Physics and Cold Atom Physics. He has published over 100 refereed scientific papers, which have been cited over 2500 times. He is joint author (with Professors S Barnett and J Jeffers from the UK) of an Oxford University Press textbook entitled Phase Space Methods for Degenerate Quantum Gases. He was recently elected a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK) in recognition of his research and other achievements, including in the development of Quantum Optics in Australia. Before coming to Swinburne in 2002, Professor Dalton was a Reader in Theoretical Physics at University of Queensland. He obtained his PhD in Molecular Physics at Monash University, having completed a B Sc and M Sc at Melbourne University. He holds a Visiting Academic Appointment at University of Glasgow (UK). His current research interests include (a) Theory of Cold Fermi Gases and Grassmann Phase Space Theory (b) Entanglement, EPR Steering and Bell Non-Locality in Systems of Identical Massive Bosons.
