The university is closed due to the COVID9 emergency. However research and teaching activities continue online! See you soon!
Last week in Como, we had the kickoff meeting of NOMEN, a MIUR-funded project aiming at exploring the use of metal-less nanoantennas and metasurfaces to develop new platforms for nonlinear photonics applications.
Single-mode squeezing in an integrated device
Xanadu demonstrates the generation of broadband single-mode quadrature squeezed vacuum from an integrated nanophotonic device. This work is available on arXiv
SPDC and phase matching
We show that in a photonic crystal the SPDC generation rate can scale with the fifth power of the structure length despite phase-matching condition is not satisfied. This work is now published in Optics Letters.
Nonlinear coupling of two optical resonators
We have demonstrated nonlinear optical coupling of two linearly uncoupled integrated resonators. This work is now published in Optics Letters.
