Becerra's Lab: Quantum Optics and Quantum Information


About the Quantum Optics (Becerra's) Lab

The Quantum Optics group performs research focusing on the study of the quantum properties of light and matter for optimal methods of measurement, information transfer, and communications. The Quantum Optics group interests include the study of measurements with sensitivities beyond conventional limits of detection for communication and metrology, and the study of quantum-state superpositions from the interaction of light and matter for quantum information processing.

We are interested in studying technologies that can be enabled by these quantum systems and understanding the limits of such quantum technologies. Applications of these studies include quantum and coherent communications, sensing, and quantum information processing.

We are part of the Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC) at the University of New Mexico with collaborations spanning across quantum information, quantum networking, and microscopy and biology.
