This Thursday, Tommaso Perani will present his work entitled Bloch-Surface-Wave Nanobeam Cavity (JTh2F.7).
An electrically-driven source of entangled photons
We demonstrate electrically-driven emission of time-energy entangled photon pairs at telecom wavelengths from a Silicon self-pumped ring. These results are now available in Optics Letters.
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
Luca and I will be at ICTON 2020 (online online) with a talk entitled "Engineering non-classical light in photonic integrated devices with linearly coupled and uncoupled resonators"
This Monday, Nicola Bergamasco will present his work entitled Topological Protection of Biphoton States Generated in Waveguide Arrays by Parametric Fluorescence (FM3C.5);
The university is closed due to the COVID9 emergency. However research and teaching activities continue online! See you soon!
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.
Call for UniPV PhD
The call for admission to the PhD program has been published on the UNIPV web page - Deadline for applications: 24 June 2020 at 5 PM CET.
We are at CLEO! This year this important conference will be accessible via Zoom at no costs. Yet, registration is mandatory. Our group will be present with various contributions.
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.
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.
