Research areas description

Our research expertise lies at the intersection of quantum photonics, quantum computing and quantum information. Our group develops the theory and computational tools to design and optimize integrated photonic structures and devices in novel nonlinear materials for the generation of bright nonclassical light, with applications in quantum information processing, quantum communication and quantum sensing. These devices will allow us to construct quantum computers that can tackle classically intractable problems in chemistry and material science, impregnable information networks for secure communication and the most precise and gentle light probes to study materials and biological processes.
