Quantum Optics and Nanophotonics

Claude Fabre, Vahid Sandoghdar, Nicolas Treps, and Leticia F. Cugliandolo


Over the last few decades, the quantum aspects of light have been explored and major progress has been made in understanding the specific quantum aspects of the interaction between light and matter. Single photons are now routinely produced by single molecules on surfaces, vacancies in crystals, and quantum dots. The micrometre and nanometre scale is also the privileged range where fluctuations of electromagnetic fields manifest themselves through the Casimir force. The domain of classical optics has recently seen many exciting new developments, especially in the areas of nano-optics, nano-ant ... More

Keywords: quantum optics, quantum information, quantum measurements, nanophotonics, plasmon, entanglement, near-field optics, quantum fluctuation, quantum correlation, intensity correlation, NV centre, single-molecule spectroscopy, weak measurement, cavity QED, microcavity, quantum dot, Casimir force, vacuum fluctuation
