The Physics Division of the School of Science and Technology comprises 8 different research groups active in theoretical and experimental physics. The Quantum Optics and Information Group, led by Prof. David Vitali, is formed by two senior researchers, Giovanni Di Giuseppe and Irene Marzoli, one postdoctoral fellow and five graduate students. Moreover, it may count on the advice and experience of Professor Emeritus Paolo Tombesi. In the last years the group has carried out research in many sub-fields of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Theory, such as entanglement manipulation and control in trapped particle systems, quantum communication and quantum key distribution. Notably the group has been one of the pioneers in the study of quantum effects in optomechanical systems, suggesting the possibility to utilize microresonators for quantum information processing.
