We have demonstrated nonlinear optical coupling of two linearly uncoupled integrated resonators. This work has been accepted for publication in Optics Letters and is available through arXiv. Stay tuned!
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!
Happy New Year
We wish you all the best for a joyful and productive 2020!
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.
Squeezing and CV quantum sampling
We propose a novel squeezed light source capable of meeting the stringent requirements of continuous variable quantum sampling. This work is now published in Physical Review Applied.
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!
