Plasmonic coherent perfect absorption and switching in a fiberized quantum network

Anton Vetlugin

Nanyang Technological University

Anton Vetlugin defended his PhD thesis, which was devoted to the theoretical aspects of quantum memory, at St. Petersburg State University, Russia at 2016. His supervisor was Prof Ivan Sokolov. After the defence he spent 2 months at the Quantum Optics group of Prof Eugene Polzik at Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen, where he got an experience in experimental quantum optics. In 2017 he joined the Centre for Disruptive Photonics Technologies at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as a Research Fellow to work on the ‘Nanophotonic Quantum Toolkit on the Fibre’ project. Today’s talk is about the part of this project.


In this report we provide the first demonstration of a fully fiberized quantum network with a fiber-integrated metamaterial as a dissipative switching element. Using the phenomenon of coherent absorption in plasmonic... [ view full abstract ]
