As a member of the
Center of Quantum Materials at KTH, QNP focuses on studying nanostructures at the single photon level. Both quantum emitters and quantum detectors are studied with the aim of developing new tools for quantum information processing. QNP's line of research within the
Center of Quantum Materials, facilitates the development of new research directions at KTH with emphasis on quantum technology. The rich and diverse scientific community at KTH enables the center to promote excellence by stimulating strong collaboration beween theoretical and experimental studies.
Our work concentrates on novel nanostructures for optics at the single photon and single electron level, we study different systems: semiconducting nanowires, superconducting detectors, atomic-solid state hybrid systems with the aim of combining these systems in quantum information processing experiments.
ADOPT Quantum Photonic Technologies Winter school 2018
The 2018 winter school of Linné Center on Advanced Optics and Photonics (ADOPT) is held in Romme Alpin, Sweden on March 22-25.
This year, the advisory committee of the school has chosen the topic of Quantum Photonic Technologies. The School will give to young students and researchers an excellent opportunity to attend a series of lectures on the foundations of the field as will as state of the art of current technologies. The lectures will be held by internationally recognized experts and will cover both fundamental aspects and applications. The students will have the opportunity to interact efficiently, exchange their knowledge, and importantly, discuss and learn directly from international experts in the field.

Quantum Materials and Photonics seminar series
We are starting a new seminar series "Quantum Materials and Photonics”. The goal is to bring together influential researchers with high quality work to exchange research ideas and especially discuss possible joint future projects. The area of research we focus on include quantum optics, nano science and engineering, superconducting physics, photonics, and research that brings together these fields.
