Theoretical Quantum Physics

PhD, Physics (TU Darmstadt, Germany)

Research Interests:

Research interests involve cavity quantum electrodynamics in quantum optics. The focus is on atom field interaction and its applications in the entanglement generation, measurement and distribution. In quantum information, the research carried out covers various aspects of practical quantum communications from quantum key distribution to long distance quantum communication. There are a number of ongoing projects in collaboration with National Institute of laser and Optronics (NILOP), nationally and with Institute of Quantum Science and Tecnology (IQST), university of Calgary, Canada.
