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.

Permanent position Mattia WalschaersMattia Walschaers was award a permanent position as junior researcher (chargé de recherche) by the CNRS. He officially started this position in October 2019.
Scientific context Our group, the multimode quantum optics group of Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, pioneered many aspects of continuous variable (CV) approach to quantum optics. Our main objects of interest are the quadratures of the electric field, which are typically...
Quantum communication experiments developed for communication networks require single photon sources with a tunable frequency and a narrow linewidth. Semiconductor quantum dots are good candidates for realizing such sources, but they need to be coupled to high finesse...
Analogue gravity is a type of analogue quantum simulation that enables the study of gravitational effects in the laboratory : it is possible to create conditions in which waves in media propagate as though they were in the vicinity of a black hole  or on an...
Analogue gravity enables the study of fields on curved spacetimes in the laboratory : it is possible to create conditions in which waves in media propagate as though they were in the vicinity of a black hole  or on an expanding universe , for example. In the...
Open post-doc position – Quantum frequency combs for multimode non-Gaussian states with application to quantum metrology
Overview Our group, the multimode quantum optics group of Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, pioneered many aspects of continuous variable (CV) approach to quantum optics. Our main objects of interest are therefore the quadratures of the electric field, which are typically...
