From Quantum Foundations to Optical Quantum Technologies
We study various topics related to basic quantum science, as well as quantum technologies. Currently, the main theme is quantum correlations which beg for a better theoretical understanding, as well as novel applications. The primary tool we
use throughout our exploration is quantum optics.
Quantum electro-optic devices Abstract
The world of quantum optics holds enormous potential to address a large variety of unsolved problems in sensing, information processing, computation, and precise measurements.
Taking the advantage of well-developed nano fabrication processes, on-chip integrated
quantum photonics is a promising platform for the realization of quantum optics technology.
Universal few-body physics at low temperatures
• Laser cooling and trapping of atoms
• Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute atomic gases; Fermi degenerate gas
• Few-body physics; universal weakly bound states
• Nonlinear matter-wave optics; matterwave solitons
• External cavity semiconductor lasers
Broadband Quantum Optics
• Optical bandwidth as a resource for quantum information: Novel schemes for quantum measurement and sources of broadband squeezed light
• Sub shot-noise interferometry and coherent Raman spectroscopy (quantum CARS) using broadband squeezed light.
• Visualization and manipulation of fast vibrational dynamics in molecules with optical frequency combs
• The physics of mode-locked lasers: new sources of ultrashort pulses and frequency combs
We explore the interaction of light and matter in both the classical regime and in the quantum regime. Applications to sensing technology, secure communications and optical frequency standards are experimentally pursued in the lab.
