PQE Group Home

We are a research group in the Cornell ECE department, pursuing ideas and techniques in optics and photonics, atomic physics and technology, and quantum technologies.

Our aims include:

  • advancing the state of the art in precise and large-scale control of quantum systems for computation and metrology,
  • leveraging technologies we develop to enable and explore novel functionalities in atomic quantum systems, and
  • exploring novel optical and electro-optic materials and devices motivated by control of quantum systems, including but not limited to ions, neutral atoms, and color centers — with an eye to application in other domains as well. 

Our work is interdisciplinary, drawing on the basic physics of atoms, ions and their interaction with light, photonic and optoelectronic technologies, and their intersections.
