Coherent and nonlinear optics

Group leader : Yannick CHASSAGNEUX

The “Coherent and Non Linear Optics” group is interested in the optical properties of nano-objects, which can be either semiconductor based heterostructures or less classical materials like carbon nanotubes, nanodiamonds or transition metal dichalcogenide-based bidimentional structures. These nano-objects can be considered as the building blocks necessary to the implementation of a quantum treatment of the information in solid state physics. We are particularly involved in the development of new integrated non classical light sources (Optical Parametric Oscillators, twin photons and single photon sources) and in the conception of new devices based on quantum optics effects.
