We are happy to welcome our new PhD students Chiara Michelini and Emiliano Staffoli. Emiliano will work within the BACKUP project and Chiara will work on quantum sensing and quantum communication protocols for the detection of distant objects or signals in the presence of traditional background noise.



We are happy to welcome Bülent Aslan  who will join our lab for one year.  Bülent will work on the exceptional point based sensors as a distinct example of non-Hermitian physics and its alternative sensing strategy in silicon photonics.


We are happy to announce that the registration to attend the 12th edition of the Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter School is open. Deadline in on 1st November 2022 

This year the school is about Photonic Quantum Information Processing and will be held from 21 till 27 of January 2023 on Hotel Montana, Monte Bondone (Trento - Italy). 
The School Directors are Lorenzo Pavesi and Mher Ghulinyan. For more info look at the school site or write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

All are invited to join!
