This project develops new sources of light that utilize quantum entanglement to enhance imaging resolution and detection. We aim to go beyond simple photon pairs and advance our understanding and control of new quantum states of light. Our approach uses deterministic single-photon subtraction (removing of a specific photon from a pulse of light) implemented with three-level solid-state quantum emitters, such as quantum dots and colour centers in diamond, coupled to chiral waveguides. In this type of waveguide, light propagation direction is determined by light’s polarization. Our goal is to cascade multiple photon subtraction stages on a chip-scale device and explore deterministic photon subtraction as a tool for engineering quantum states of light for improved resolution of optical microscopy and long range optical sensing.
Distributing Multimode Entanglement with Microwave Photons
Microwaves have enabled numerous classical technologies, in part because they propagate through air with little energy loss.

Silicon Platform for Electron Spin Qubits
Summary Scaling solid-state quantum processors to a useful threshold while maintaining the requisite precision in quantum control remains a challenge. We propose a quantum metal-oxide-semiconductor (QMOS) architecture operating at cryogenic temperatures that is based on a network/node approach as a means to scalability. By working with QMOS, we benefit from the deep investments and […]

Coherent magnon generation, magnon condensation, and quantum spin liquids via spin pumping in 2D magnets
Summary Developing hybrid quantum systems is essential to harnessing the complementary advantages of different quantum technology platforms. This necessitates the successful transfer of quantum information between platforms, which can be achieved, e.g., by harnessing magnons, or spin wave excitations, in magnetic materials. Decoherence due to uncontrolled coupling of qubits to the environment remains a fundamental […]

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy of Quantum Materials, Devices and Molecules
Summary This project advances our ability to characterize and study novel quantum materials, quantum devices, and even individual molecules at the atomic level. By combining Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscopy (NC-AFM), Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and scanning gate methods, we correlate spatial information with transport properties and can locally manipulate charge, spin and structural states.
