Multimode quantum optics
Quantum Optics, as the child of Optics and Quantum Mechanics, has inherited a double linearity: that of Maxwell equations, which use optical modes as a basis of solutions, and that of the Schrödinger equation, which uses quantum state bases. Considering these two bases on an equal footing and tailoring quantum fields not only in given modes, but also optimizing the spatio-temporal shapes of the modes in which the state is defined, opens wide perspectives for treating complex quantum states. Our aim is to explore and characterize theoretically the quantum states that span on many optical modes (from several tens to several thousands) and many Hilbert space basis states, to unravel their intrinsic properties and to find optimized witnesses of different properties such as multi-entanglement. We also investigate the use of optimized multimode states for pushing the quantum limits of the multiplexed estimation of physical parameters and for increasing the channel capacity of optical communications.

Modal approach to multi-parameter estimation
Quantum computers require a range of properties. First of all, we want them to be programmable to tackle a wide range of different problems. Furthermore, we also want them to be scalable, which means that we can put fundamental building blocks together to build a...
The multimode quantum optics group has an open position for a theory internship to study the connection between quantum steering and non-Gaussian effects.
Members of our group published several new theoretical results early on in December 2019. A first result discusses the remote preparation of Wigner-negativity by using Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering. The second result was obtained by Francesca Sansavini during her...
Mattia Walschaers was awarded a permanent position as junior researcher (chargé de recherche) by the CNRS. He started this position in October 2019.
The project of COQCOoN - ERC Consolidator grant recently awarded to Valentina Parigi - started last June. We will deal with Continuous Variables Quantum Complex Networks. Follow future updates on our section Quantum Complex Networks.
