Serkan Ates is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B. Sc. in Physics from the Izmir Institute of Technology, Turkey and M. Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. For his graduate research, he investigated resonance fluorescence and stimulated light emission from coupled semiconductor quantum dot – cavity systems. Before joining the CNST, Serkan was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark where he worked to develop efficient single-photon generation from a single quantum dot in photonic crystal nanocavities. Serkan is currently working with Kartik Srinivasan on measuring nanoscale near-infrared quantum emitters using frequency upconversion techniques.
