Research Type: 

Research in our group focuses on quantum optics and technology. Quantum optics studies various phenomena in light-matter interaction, where the quantum properties of the light and matter play an important role. Quantum technology is an emerging interdisciplinary field, encompassing several fields of physics and technology. It aims to realize practical devices for quantum simulations, computing, communication and metrology. Owing to their unprecedented controllability, quantum optical systems have become a perfect playground for the verification and further development of new ideas for quantum technology applications. In our theoretical quantum optics group, we explore and study fundamental properties of various quantum optical systems, including photons and atoms, and their applications to  quantum technology. Our research is motivated by, but is not limited to quantum computation and simulations, communication and cryptography.
