Tag: Quantum Optics and Ultrafast Dynamics

Optical quantum technologies will shape the 21st century and have a profound impact on technological and economic developments worldwide. They are used in quantum communication, but also in quantum metrology and quantum computing. In Erlangen, the Department of Physics at FAU and the Max Planck ...

Maria Chekhova obtained her PhD at the Lomonosov University Moscow in 1989, for a work on polariton spectroscopy, and stayed there as a researcher and a group leader. Her habilitation thesis in 2004 dealt with the polarization and spectral properties of two-photon light. From 1997 to 2009, she worke...

Joachim von Zanthier leads the group Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the Physics Department of FAU. His group investigates multi-photon states, fragile states of light which carry additional information about the emitting sample. Multi-photon interferences can be used, for example, to imag...

Hanieh Fattahi received her PhD in Physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. After graduation in 2016, she received the Minerva fast-track scholarship of the Max Planck Society, which allowed her to establish a research group within the chair of Prof. Ferenc Krausz at Max Planck Institute o...

Marc-Oliver Pleinert’s focus of research is the experimental validation of results emerging from quantum theory. By “Testing Higher-Order Quantum Interference with Many-Particle States”, he set a new benchmark in experimental studies of higher-order interference. He successfully observed two-particl...

Recently, Stefan Richter published on “Imaging Trapped Ion Structures via Fluorescence Cross-Correlation Detection”. This highly sensitive technique yields structural information of the arrangement of single photon sources where direct imaging techniques fail. His results on the spatial frequenc...
