RESEARCH PROJECTS IN THEORETICAL QUANTUM OPTICS, CHRISTOPH SIMON, UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY

I am looking for masters students who are interested in doing their research project in my theoretical quantum optics group at the University of Calgary. Our current research interests are briefly described below. My group is part of the Institute for Quantum Information Science at the University of Calgary, which encompasses several excellent experimental and theoretical groups (see http://www.iqis.org/), guaranteeing a rich and stimulating
research environment. Financial support is available if needed.

Candidates should send an email with a CV to christoph.simon@gmail.com.
Recommendation letters (by email) are also greatly appreciated.

Research Interests :

The interaction of light and matter at the quantum level has played a major role in the development of quantum physics. Its detailed study in the field of quantum optics has led to the development of important applications such as the laser, and to the first experimental demonstrations of the most striking features of quantum physics, such as entanglement and quantum non-locality. But quantum optics is not
ready to rest on its laurels. There are two key future challenges. On the one hand, we strive to develop genuine applications of these fundamental quantum features. Our group is particularly interested in the development of quantum repeaters, which will be essential for
future long-distance quantum communication. This motivates us to study potential implementations of quantum memories and of quantum gates between individual photons in various systems. We are also interested in developing novel precise measurement techniques based on quantum physics. On the other hand, quantum optical systems are ideally positioned to explore the quantum-classical transition, allowing us to deepen our understanding of how the classical macroscopic world arises out of microscopic quantum behavior. This motivates us to study the quantum amplification of photons to macroscopic levels, as well as quantum opto-mechanical systems. All these directions are pursued in close contact with leading experimental groups.

A former student Arnaud Rispe went to this group and published 2 articles (see here in 2010 on this page)
