Hybrid Electro-Optical Quantum Nanosystems

October 15, 2012 - 12:30pm
Speaker: 
Jonathan Finley
Institution: 
Walter Schottky Institut, Garching

In this talk I will give an overview of several research themes pursued in my group on hybrid electro-optical quantum nanosystems. Specific examples include the electro-optical preparation, manipulation and readout of the spin of single electrons and holes in artificial atoms and molecules and the investigation of coupling to the solid-state environment and the exploration of tailored dielectric / metallic photonic nanomaterials that facilitate control of the light-matter interaction at the single emitter – single photon limit. I will discuss how, by coupling several degrees of freedom at the quantum limit (here, spin - photon - electron...) new avenues of exploration can be opened up across many fields in solid-state quantum physics and applied nanoscience.

(At 4pm in the conversation space of CSS, there will be an opportunity for postdocs and graduate students to meet with speaker.  Tea and cookies will be served.)
