News and Events

Congratulations to Ben Lawrie, who received an appointment as a Joint Faculty Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UTK. He joins QIS researchers Ali Passian, Raphael Pooser, and Bing Qi, who also hold joint faculty appointments at UTK.

On March 30, Wigner Fellow Joseph Lukens presented his research on pulse shaping entangled photons at Spectral and Spatial Engineering of Quantum Light (SSEQL 2016), held in Warsaw. More information about the workshop can be found here.

Quantum Mechanical Burglar Alarm: QIS researchers Brian Williams and Travis Humble, along with Keith Britt, recently published a paper in Physical Review Applied describing a “tamper-indicating quantum seal.” Read more about the work at here.

QIS researchers Raphael Pooser and Ben Lawrie demonstrated the first practical quantum plasmonic sensor using quantum noise reduction, or “squeezed light”, which enables detection of lower concentrations of analytes than classical sensors. The sensor is of interest because it applies quantum enhancement to a ubiquitous, off the shelf device, a first for any quantum sensor. The paper was featured on the January 2016 cover of ACS Photonics.

A paper by QIS researcher (and ORNL Wigner Fellow), Joseph Lukens, was recently highlighted in OSA’s “Spotlight on Optics.” In the paper, Lukens and his co-authors at Purdue University describe a method for improving timing resolution in photon coincidence measurements, based on high-speed electro-optic modulation.
