Quantum Nano-Optics

The quantum nature of light has gained much interest for its technological prospects in quantum information, communication, sensing and metrology. We combine quantum optics with nano-optics to advance our understanding of light-matter interaction in such context and to push the development of these emerging technologies. We are particularly interested in coupling novel quantum emitters to nanoscale resonators and in investigating such hybrid systems using ultrafast techniques that may allow us to explore quantum phenomena in the presence of strong decoherence.
