Our group’s research puts together quantum optics, i.e., using quantum mechanical descriptions of classical and non-classical light and light-matter interfaces, and quantum information theory, i.e., using mathematical tools from quantum extensions of information, estimation, control, signal processing theories, to find ways to approach fundamental precision limits of photonic based information processing—with applications to communications, optical sensing and imaging, and quantum computing (on information encoded in the photon). Some example applications of our work include deep space communications, long-baseline astronomy, covert sensing, super-resolution microscopy, quantum enhanced atomic force microscopes, and quantum repeaters for long range quantum communications.
