Quantum BC Seminar Series – Reuven Gordon

January 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us on Tuesday, January 9 at 2pm for a seminar by Dr. Reuven Gordon from the University of Victoria.

Title: Isolating and Coupling Single Photon Emitters with Nanoaperture Optical Tweezers

Abstract: This talk will give an introduction to our nanoaperture optical tweezer approach, focussing on applications to quantum emitters. In particular, I will describe efforts to isolate single Erbium emitters in nanocrystals for single photon sources at fiber optic communication wavelengths, and to study resonant energy transfer between perovskite quantum dots. Recent work on tracking single proteins without labels or fluorescence will also be discussed.

Bio: Reuven Gordon is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Victoria, Victoria, Canada. He is a Fellow of Optica, SPIE and IEEE and he is Deputy Editor for Optics Express.
