Dr. Jeff Lundeen’s experimental and theoretical research uses individual particles of light, photons, to test and apply ideas from quantum physics. The careful control of quantum particles will allow us to build sensors with dramatically higher sensitivity, computers that can solve conventionally intractable problems, and the first provably secure communication systems. Dr. Lundeen’s research focuses on developing methods to generate, manipulate, and characterize single photons and entangled photon pairs. It uses these quantum states of light to build novel quantum logic, communication, and metrology devices.
