Microresonators for quantum optics

Tuesday March 7, 2017
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Zachary Vernon, University of Toronto
 Series:  CQuIC Seminars
 Abstract:  Microresonators are developing as promising platforms for quantum optics. These devices provide robust light confinement in 3D, dramatically enhancing nonlinear optical interactions. A number of quantum applications of microresonators have been recently demonstrated, including entangled photon pair generation at microwatt-level pump powers, high-efficiency quantum frequency conversion, and strong coupling of photonic modes. These devices can also be used as sources of squeezed light and heralded single photons. By studying the theoretical underpinnings of these and other nonlinear optical processes in resonant microstructures using fully quantum-mechanical models, we aim to better understand what is and what is not possible in such systems, and to extend our findings to the general theory of cavity nonlinear optics.
