Nonlinear & Quantum Optics
Nonlinear optics deals with the behavior of intense light in media exhibiting nonlinear response to the applied optical field. It enables wavelength conversion and multiphoton absorption, and plays essential roles in optical telecommunication, nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy, and attosecond science.
Quantum optics is concerned with light-matter interaction phenomena requiring quantum-mechanical description. It includes processing of quantum information at the photon level, and supports applications ranging from ultrasensitive measurement and secure communication to computing.
