Nonlinear nano-photonic structures for frequency conversion: from classical to quantum applications

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    This project will develop new concepts for optical frequency conversion, taking advantage of new opportunities presented by advances in fabrication technologies of nano-structures. New configurations of planar and three-dimensional nano-photonic structures will enable harmonic generation with world-leading power efficiency, operation in a broad spectral region, and with phase- and group-velocity matching of ultra-short pulses to suit a wide range of potential application requirements. Furthermore, we will uncover the potential for flexible shaping of quantum statistics for photons generated in nano-photonic structures through spontaneous frequency conversion, contributing to the development of integrated quantum circuits.
