Quantum Photonics Group

LSU Department of Physics & Astronomy

Welcome to the Quantum Photonics Group website! We explore the fundamental and applied aspects of optical physics and quantum optics. We investigate novel properties of light and their potential for developing quantum technologies in free-space and on-chip. Quantum science and technology is a rapidly developing area of research that has tremendous potential to impact areas of science and engineering. Some of the research projects that we have been pursuing include:

  • the development of quantum networks that enable novel schemes for information processing,

  • the demonstration of novel schemes for quantum metrology that use complex multiphoton states,

  • the implementation of quantum protocols that utilize optimization and machine learning algorithms to effectively use the information content in each photon, and

  • the exploration of physical conditions under which light is forced to manifest new surprising properties.
