Primary activity: The focus of our activity on molecules for quantum optics is the combination of advanced photonic materials with organic molecules, with the idea of developing novel light-matter interfaces for quantum technologies. Single-molecule-based photon sources can be selectively coupled to the evanescent electromagnetic field of plasmonic excitations, graphene, or complex dielectric media. The system hence represents a valuable testbed for applications ranging from microscale opto-electronics, to fluorescence-based sensing and solid-state protocols for quantum communication. The group is also working on the coupling of single molecule to the Atom-Chip condensate.

Main experiences acquired: single molecule spectroscopy and microscopy, micro- and nano-photonics, optics of disordered systems, Anderson localization, graphene for QED, quantum optics
