"Quantum optics beyond qubits: molecular spectroscopy and imaging with quantum light"

Dr. Konstantin E. Dorfman
East China Normal University


The progress in quantum optics utilizes a unique photon state configuration for engineering of the ultimate light-matter interactions with relatively simple material systems. It results in a broad range of photonic applications including radiation sources, quantum communication, information, computing and nanotechnology. The development of the ultrafast multidimensional nonlinear spectroscopy that has been enabled by progress in ultrafast optical technology provides a unique tool for probing complex molecules, semiconductors, nanomaterials by classical light fields. I will show how new quantum phenomena in complex systems can be studied and controlled using advances in both quantum optics and nonlinear spectroscopy. In particular, I investigate how to probe, control, and image the dynamics of these complex systems using quantum light and reveal the material information, which is not accessible by conventional classical photonics tools.
