Project title: Applications of single-photon technologies

Project is carried out within the First Team programme of the Foundation for Polish Science

The research project aims at developing: 1) singlephoton sources and single photon characterization techniques, and their 2) applications in a selection of problems, which have a high potential to be solved using carefully prepared states of photons. Those problems are quantum communication with single-mode fibers and free space link using satellite receiver, efficient entangled two-photon absorption and quantum interference with nanostructures.

Key responsibilities include:

1. Preparing and conducting experiments related to quantum optics and quantum communication

2. Articles writing

3. Working with Msc students

Benefits

Tutorship

Work in the state of the art quantum optics laboratory
