Photonics/Quantum Optics

Take a closer look at the interaction of light and matter, and study novel physical phenomena that arise from these relations. Michigan Tech researchers not only search for applications in telecommunications, quantum cryptography, photon entanglement, data processing, and quantum computing—but are also in pursuit of new knowledge for curiosity’s sake.
