Dr. Corrado Sciancalepore of CEA-LETI (France) will be visiting the Department of Physics on November 4-5. He will give a seminar on "Ultra-low loss SiN Photonics" on Nov. 5 at 3.30 PM in Aula Dottorato.
Luca has successfully defended his Master thesis on Friday, and he will join our group as PhD canditate starting immediately.
This week I am at Xanadu, a quantum photonic company with a terrific team of people working hard to develop photonic-based quantum computing.
Topological photonics in nonlinear optics
We demonstrated that topological protection of the linear properties of an optical system does not equally extend to the case of nonlinear interactions. This work is now published in Physical Review A.
A field trip
Today we had our annual field trip for the grape harvest. A bit of work in the vineyard followed by a lot of pizzoccheri and other delicious food from Valtellina!
