Research Overview

Faraon Lab develops nano-photonic quantum technologies for devices that operate close to the fundamental limit of light-matter interaction. Quntum photonics applications include on-chip optical quantum memories, single optically-addressable quantum bits, quantum conversion of photons in different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. Classical nano-photonics applications include micron-thick optical devices for free-space optics, ultra-fast optical beam steering, ultra-compact microscopy
