Single photon sources for integrated quantum photonics based on organic molecules

Pietro Ernesto Lombardi


Pietro Ernesto Lombardi received his master degree in Physics at University of Firenze in 2008 with a thesis on photo-thermal effects in high finesse cavities.He obtained the PhD in atomic physics in 2012 within the frame of a international collaboration between the LENS (laboratorio di spettroscopia non-lineare, Firenze) and the LKB (laboratoire Kastler-Brossel, Paris) focused on Raman and EIT-based coherent manipulation of an alkali gas, both at room and ultra-cold temperature. Since 2014 he is PostDoc in the quantum nano-photonic group of Costanza Toninelli, in Firenze, which works with organic dye molecules as single photon sources for quantum technologies.


Efficient quantum light sources are basic ingredients for photonic quantum technologies. On the other hand, on-chip integration is necessary to envision a scalable platform for quantum information and communication. In the... [ view full abstract ]
