Spectroscopy and Optical Control with Quantum Light
Our research interests span current research areas concerning the interaction of quantum light with complex quantum systems in chemical physics and condensed matter. Specifically, we work extsnively on the theory of nonlinear spectroscopy with quantum light. We are particularly interested in the role of photonic quantum correlations in absorption processes, and how these can be employed for quantum-enhanced spectroscopic applications. Besides, we explore how optical cavities can be employed to manipulate material properties in the strong coupling regime. Recent experiments suggest that cavities can enhance the critical temperatures of certain superconductors and we are trying to understand how this could be possible.
Finally, we have been or are involved in a number of research projects covering other aspects of quantum optics, such as trapped ion quantum simulations.
