Quantum Optics Seminar by Jelena Vuckovic

Optical nanocavities enable very strong emitter-field interaction as a result of the field localization inside of their sub-cubic wavelength volumes. Our research focuses on the interaction of one or more self-assembled InAs quantum dots with modes of GaAs optical nanocavities or photonic molecules.  In addition to the study of light-matter interaction (cavity QED), this platform is also interesting for implementing devices for applications ranging from quantum information processing to biophotonics. The examples include ultrafast quantum gates, nonclassical light sources, and spin-photon interfaces for quantum information processing; ultrafast, low energy optical modulators and nanolasers for classical information processing; and single cell nanophotonic probes.
