Research Group on Quantum optics, nonlinear optics and laser physics - QOVAL

Description

The group has been doing research in quantum optics, nonlinear optics, laser dynamics and other systems since 1989, with stable and uninterrupted funding through the national research plans of the Spanish government. The research is of a basic nature and seeks to describe new phenomena, both through theory and experiment. An important part of the group's activity is the training of PhDs, with 10 doctoral theses having been defended by 2019.

Goals CT
  • Study of new mechanisms for the reduction of quantum fluctuations of light.
  • Description of new formalisms for the study of the dynamics of modelocked lasers.
  • Search for new behaviours in quantum walks and their implementations.
  • Description of new ways of acting on the spatio-temporal dynamics of non-linear systems, in particular optical ones.
Research lines
  • Quantum walks

    Theoretical studies on quantum walks and proposed implementations in optical devices.

  • Laser physics

    Modelling and characterisation of the dynamics of mode-locked lasers.

  • Non-linear dynamics

    Modelling, simulation and experimental study of the non-linear dynamics of optical cavities and other systems, solitons and spatial patterns.

  • Quantum fluctuations of light

    Study of quantum fluctuations of light, in particular mechanisms that produce a squeezing of quantum noise below the shot noise level, as well as quantum entanglement.
