Available student project - Integrated quantum photonics
- Quantum Science and Technology
- Photonics, Lasers and Nonlinear Optics
Entangled photons can be generated by a laser and transformed in various optical circuits and meta-surfaces.
The project involves experimental and theoretical study of various integrated quantum optical schemes. We take bright lasers and entangled photons, and put them into integrated photonic circuits (micro-schemes for light) and meta-surfaces (thin artificial materials with engineered properties not found in nature). Weird quantum physics combined with state of the art photonic technology reveals a number of exciting counter-intuitive phenomena. Potential applications include information transfer with unprecedented security, scalable quantum tomography, and efficient simulation of complex quantum systems with information capacity exceeding the number of elementary particles in the entire universe.
