Laboratory of Quantum Optics
About the laboratory
Characterization methods based on the use of innovative light sources allow to get information on the basic processes occurring in matter at molecular and atomic level. Such information is essential for a large number of scientific and technological applications. Moreover, the theoretical and experimental studies aimed at designing and building new light sources based on quanto-mechanical principles (QMLS), and at optimizing their performance, are in itself a state-of-the-art field of research. Centers of research built around QMLS are at the crossroad between modern research, cutting-edge technology, high-level education training and business sector. The laboratory of Quantum Optics (LKO), will base its activity on the development and use of the CITIUS light source.
