Biography

My work focus on integrated quantum photonics and its application to quantum computation and sensing. I established a new facility at Griffith University for the fabrication of integrated optical devices in lithium niobate (LN), crystal periodic-poling and reconfigurable electro optical devices. I have expertise in the design and fabrication of integrated optical devices for classical and quantum applications including the generation and manipulation of nonclassical state on chip. In particular I fabricated periodically-poled waveguides in LN for frequency conversion at telecom wavelength, demonstrated for the first time fast manipulation of single photons in LN waveguides and the generation of photon pairs in periodically-poled lithium tantalate waveguide.
