Here we give a brief overview of our research activities.
We develop novel tools and techniques to generate quantum light states and arbitrarily manipulate and characterize light at the single-photon level. This allows us to perform experiments that test the very foundations of quantum mechanics and pave the way to emerging quantum technologies.
We exploit laser-matter interactions at very high intensities for the generation of novel light sources. Our main research lines concern the production of high-order laser harmonics and the generation of supercontinuum.
Apart from the two main research lines, we are actively working on several other interesting topics. These imply the use of our advanced laser sources and techniques for different purposes, ranging from the production of new diamond-based detectors, to the simulation of transport in complex networks, to optical diagnostics for medicine/biology and cultural heritage samples…
