Photonics and Quantum Systems


This group studies the application of light in micro-manipulation systems, quantum computing and characterization of micro and nanostructured materials including metamaterials. We develop special light profiles using lasers and other incoherent light sources. Lasers are one of the most important areas in scientific and applied research, they have been successfully applied in various fields such as medicine, metrology, telecommunications and biotechnology, among others.

In these applications, it is very important to control the widening of the beam as it propagates through the air. Several current research in optics are designed to minimize the light beams dispersion. Additionally, the group will explore the potential applications of these rays in the industry (drilling and cutting laser), biotechnology (optical tweezers) and metrology for materials characterization.
