Outline

Developments in nanofabrication techniques have enabled integration of individual nano-materials into devices, where interactions between photons and electrons could be controlled at the nanoscale by combining optical and electrical approaches. Such devices may potentially be used for manipulation of quantum degrees of freedom, for example electron spins and photon polarization, which would ultimately lead to quantum photon sources and optical-to-electrical quantum interfaces. By pursuing research on optoelectronic devices that incorporate nano-materials, Quantum Optoelectronics Research Team is devoted to the development and engineering of such devices with novel functionalities.
