Unlocking the infrared spectrum with quantum devices
By combining confinement inside heterostructures with optical confinement at the micro and nanoscale, new devices are created where electron and photons flows are engineered. This laboratory emphasizes the use of these techniques to unlock the scientific and technological potential of the mid-infrared and terahertz spectrum of the electromagnetic radiation.
On area of research concerns the Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) and its implementations for generating terahertz, frequency agile devices as well as optical frequency combs. The group also focuses on the use of metamaterials and the physics of the ultra-strong light-matter coupling.
