Solid State Quantum Optics group

Research Type: 

Our research is devoted to the study and development of quantum functionalities in semiconductor systems using the nanofabrication techniques of opto-electronics. We develop high performances integrated sources of quantum light, non-linear devices operating at the single photon level, spin-based quantum memories and optomechanical platforms for quantum information processing.

Venue and Accommodation


The CHIST-ERA Conference will take place @

Ministero Istruzione, Università, Ricerca (MIUR), Sala Conferenze (C), Piano Terra Piazzale Kennedy, 20 – 00144 ROMA EUR

How to get there

Once you are in Roma Termini station, the MIUR can be reached in two ways by public transportation:

  • Underground B, direction "Laurentina". Stop: EUR FERMI. You can then walk from there (10 minutes)
  • Underground B, direction "Laurentina". Stop: EUR MARCONI. Exit the station and take either the 791 or the 170 bus
    • Bus number 791 direction "Nervi/Palazzetto dello Sport": exit at the bus stop "Piazzale dell’Agricoltura"; the MIUR is on the opposite side of the street
    • Bus number 170 direction "Piazzale dell’Agricoltura": same as before, exit at the bus stop "Piazzale dell’Agricoltura"; the MIUR is on the opposite side of the street

A map of the EUR area can be found in the attachment section.
A map of the Rome undergrounds is available here

More travelling tips (e.g., how to arrive from Ciampino airport, taxis, etc.) are available below in the attachment section.
