The Chekhova Research Group was formed in 2015 as an independent unit within the Max-Planck Institute for the Science of Light. Our research field is experimental quantum optics. Our main direction is developing sources of nonclassical (quantum) light.
- We generate nonclassical light from quantum dots, nonlinear crystals, photonic-crystal fibres.
- We test this light for photon-number correlations, entanglement, and squeezing.
- We use this light for quantum information and photonic technologies.
