Leuchs Division

The research of the Leuchs Division spans a wide range from classical to quantum optics, as well as from fundamental questions to applications. Some groups concentrate on the spatial structure of the light field including optics design, optical sensors, and polarisation optimization e.g. in focusing light. Others study the temporal characteristics of light including quantum noise manipulations or generation of single photons and of quantum entangled states. All this is achieved using nonlinear interactions, e.g. nonlinear optical fibres and resonators and is applied to topics such as quantum key distribution, optical amplification, development of optical logic quantum gates.
