Highly Nonlinear Quantum Optics and Optomechanics

Date & time

Thu 5 Oct 2017, 3pm



CQC2T Seminar Room


Members of RSPE welcome


Professor Radim Filip
Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic
The talk will present an overview of recent theoretical and experimental
activities in highly nonlinear quantum optics and optomechanics with
continuous variables. First, it will focus on a generation of highly
instable cubic quantum nonlinearities for optical, atomic and
nanomechanical systems. Second, it will continue on thermally-induced
nonlinear effects producing nonclassical states of light and motion.

Professor Radim Filip is a theory expert in quantum optics, light-matter interaction, quantum optomechanics, quantum communication and quantum information processing. He is a head of a research group at the Department of Optics, the Faculty of Science of the Palacky University in Olomouc. In 2005, he received the Alexander-von-Humboldta Fellowship at MPL Erlangen.  In 2007, he was awarded by the Special recognition of the Czech Science Foundation for his start-up project. In 2011, he received the Prize of President of Czech Science Foundation for his excellent contribution in quantum optics. Since 2014, he is a Scientific Director of the Centre of Excellence for Classical and Quantum Interactions in Nano-World.
