Organic molecules for Quantum Optics
The focus of our activity on molecules for
quantum optics is the combination of advanced
photonic materials with organic molecules,
with the idea of developing novel light-matter
interfaces for quantum technologies.
Single-molecule-based photon sources can be selectively
coupled to the evanescent electromagnetic field
of plasmonic excitations, graphene, or complex
dielectric media. The system hence represents
a valuable testbed for applications ranging from
microscale opto-electronics, to fluorescence-based
sensing and solid-state protocols for quantum communication.
The group is also working on the coupling of single molecule to the Atom-Chip condensate.
