Phase-matching-free micron-sized parametric oscillators by two-dimensional media

Andrea Marini

University of L'Aquila

Dr Marini achieved his PhD in Photonics in November 2011 at The University of Bath, United Kingdom. He led postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (2011-2014) in Erlangen, Germany, and at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (2014-2017) in Castelldefels, Spain. In his career he has been awarded two Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships and a ''Rita Levi Montalcini'' Assistant Professorship funded by the Italian Ministry of Education and Research. Since December 2017 he is Assistant Professor in Physics of Condensed Matter at The University of L'Aquila, Italy.


Parametric down-conversion (PDC) furnishes tunable sources of coherent radiation and generators of entangled photons and squeezed states of light. In traditional configurations, a nonlinear crystal with broken centrosymmetry... [ view full abstract ]
