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.
