P. Senellart was interviewed by the French Science museum… For French speakers only!
Congratulations to Dr. Loïc Lanco who was nominated as a junior member of the “Institut universitaire de France” (IUF) for five years, starting from October 1st 2019. The Institut Universitaire de France is a service of the French Ministry of Higher Education that distinguishes … Continued
Physicists at C2N have demonstrated for the first time the direct generation of light in a state that is simultaneously a single photon, two photons, and no photon at all. They showed that the same kind of light emitters used … Continued
Micropillar are excellent acoustic resonators in the 18 HGz range Optics Express 25, 24437-24447 (2017) Recent experiments demonstrated that GaAs/AlAs based micropillar cavities are promising systems for quantum optomechanics, allowing the simultaneous three-dimensional confinement of near-infrared photons and acoustic phonons … Continued
Tunable bandwidth and nonlinearities in an atom-photon interface with subradiant states Phys. Rev. A 98, 013813 – (2018) Optical nonlinearities at the single-photon level are key features to build efficient photon-photon gates and to implement quantum networks. Such optical nonlinearities can … Continued
Polarization rotation induced by an artificial atom in a cavity Optica 4, 1326-1332 (2017) A major challenge in the development of atom–photon and photon–photon quantum gates is to provide output photons in a pure quantum state, as opposed to incoherent … Continued
Nature Nanotechnology 12, 1026–1039 (2017) Pascale Senellart, Glenn Solomon and Andrew White were invited to write a review article about the fantastic progress made by the semiconductor community in the development of single photon sources. All you wanted to know here.
Congratulations to Dr. Lanzillotti-Kimura who is one of the laureates of the 2016 ERC starting grant. His project called “NanoPhennec” is dedicated to the development of Nanophononic devices: from phonon networks to phonon CQED.
