Welcome. We investigate the interaction of light with semiconductor materials and device structures. We appropriate the quantum optics techniques first used in atomic physics, and mix in a little traditional semiconductor crystal growth and processing to investigate our own particular flavor of semiconductor quantum optics. General topics are the statistics and dynamics of light emitted from semiconductor nanostructures, and light-matter interactions using microcavities. Decoherence through coupling to various reservoirs is an important issue and interest. While we often work to emulate pristine atomic systems, we believe the robust quality of solid-state materials and devices offers scaleable, chip-scale integrated systems for quantum information applications.

We took a hike up Sugarloaf Mountain one August afternoon in 2012. No flip-flops in the lab, but on a hike Tim can do as he wishes.
