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.
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.
Today Jacopo Piantanida Chiesa has successfully defended his Bachelor thesis with an excellent presentation on analogies and difference between single- and two-photon emission/absorption processes. Congratulations!
Luca Zatti is among the winners of a PhD fellowship at the University of Pavia. Starting from November, he will be PhD candidate at the Department of Physics.
One ring to rule them all!
In collaboration with Vanderbilt University, we demonstrated the first BSW-based ring resonator. Our results are now available on Applied Physics Letter.
Leti is a technology research institute based in Grenoble specialized in micro and nanotechnologies. On June 25, I will attend Leti Innovation Days as keynote speaker for the Silicon Photonics workshop.
MITACS Research Award
Luca Zatti has been awarded the MITACS Globalink Research Award. He will spend three months at the Department of Physics of the University of Toronto for his Master thesis project. Congratulation!
Luca has successfully defended his Master thesis on Friday, and he will join our group as PhD canditate starting immediately.
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!
Course of Photonics
The course of Photonics will start on Oct. 1st, at 3 PM in Room 326.
Energy-encoded W states
We demonstrate the generation of a three-photon discrete-energy-entangled W state in an optical fiber. This work is now published in the Physical Review Letters.
Visiting Pairs 7
May 21-22, I will be visiting the group of Prof. Sara Ducci at the Department of Physics of the Université Paris Diderot. On May 22nd, I will give a talk on the generation of frequency bins in integrated devices.
Meet us @ CLEO
May 5-10, Nicola Bergamasco and I will attend CLEO 2019 in San Jose, California.
Jacopo Piantanida will join our group for his undergraduate project focused on the study of photon pair generation by spontaneous and stimulated emission via parametric processes.
This week I am at Xanadu, a quantum photonic company with a terrific team of people working hard to develop photonic-based quantum computing.
Aephraim Steinberg @ UniPV
Prof. Aephraim Steinberg of the University of Toronto will be visiting our Department of Physics on October 10-11. He will give a seminar on October 10, at 12 PM in Aula Dottorato.
A new nano beam cavity
We demonstrate a nanobeam cavity based on a photonic crystal ridge that supports localized Bloch surface waves. This work will soon appear in Optics Letters, stay tuned!
Michael Scalora @UniPV
Dr. Michael Scalora of the Charles M. Bowden Research Facility at AMRDEC, US Army RDECOM will be visiting our Department of Physics on July 4th. He will give a seminar at 11 AM in Aula Dottorato.
We demonstrate a scalable and efficient approach for the generation of frequency-bin encoded qudit states in photonics integrated devices. This work is now published in Optics Letters.
Stewart Aitchison @UniPV
Prof. Stewart Aitchison of the University of Toronto will be visiting our Department of Physics on April 8th. He will give a seminar at 10 AM in Aula Dottorato.
