TCQP had a good presence at two recent conferences. In February, Nicolas, Jackson and Jared all gave talks at ICONN 2016 in Canberra while in March Sam, David and Jared presented their work at the German Spring Meeting in Regensburg.

David Ing has finally returned from a 12 month exchange to the University of Ulm (Germany) and Sam has also returned from two months in the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany).

On the science front, Dr. Jan Jeske's work on lasing in the NV centre has had two recent successes with the publication of the original theoretical proposal (Jeske et al. Laser threshold magnetometry) as well as the first experimental measurements of Stimulated emission from NV centres in diamond. Speaking of the arXiv, Prof. Andrew Greentree has also recently posted a review of his favourite topic, Spatial adiabatic passage: a review of recent progress.
