Research Group |

Professor Faraon's Lab develops nano-photonic quantum technologies for devices that operate close to the fundamental limit of light-matter interaction. Applications include on-chip optical signal processing at ultra-low power levels, energy-efficient sensors, biophotonics, and quantum information processing. The development of nanophotonic quantum devices involves a design phase based on nanoscale classical and quantum optics, nanofabrication that pushes the limits of state-of-the-art cleanroom equipment, and optical characterization at the single photon level.
