Quantum Optics Group

Welcome
Two photon light created by parametric down conversion

The Quantum Optics Group 

  • carries out experimental and theoretical studies of quantum optics phenomena resulting from linear and nonlinear optical processes
  • develops techniques for the production and detection of nonclassical states for light
  • develops techniques relying on quantum optics and quantum optics-based components for new measurement capability, improved metrological accuracy, and quantum information applications.

Programs/Projects

Quantum information technology and correlated photon radiometry—We develop methods and devices to further radiometric techniques and quantum information technology. This includes developing and characterizing new sources with engineered single photon state …

Applied Quantum Information Science—Theory is being developed and used to devise methods for preserving and exploiting the quantum behavior of ever-larger systems and finding potential roles for these systems in technology.
