Quantum Optics Group
The group research area is centered on the quantum properties of light that is produced by many different optical systems. It consists of experimental and theoretical studies concerning quantum fluctuations of light, generation of entangled states, interaction between quantum light and matter, nanophotonics, and quantum metrology.

INTERNSHIP : Impact of multiple non-linear mechanisms on quantum states of light generation We aim at identifying how multiple non-linear mechanisms impact the generation of non-classical state of light, such as squeezed states . Non-linear interactions are...read more
INTERNSHIP: Vortex pair dynamics in superfluid of light When light propagates in linear medium (vacuum, air etc), photon behaves as a non-interacting gas, but when the medium is non-linear (atomic vapor or semiconductor microcavity for examples), they start flowing as...read more

INTERNSHIP: Energy cascade in superfluid of light Turbulence remains up today among the most puzzling of phenomena in physics. One of the key discoveries made since then was the energy cascade mechanism and its scaling by A. Kolmogorov, which explains how...read more
INTERNSHIP: Quantum stochastic thermodynamics of light Classic thermodynamics is the phenomenological theory of the average behavior of heat and work for systems in thermal equilibrium. At the nanoscale, fluctuations dominate and systems generically operate far...read more
