Major Research Interests:

- Quantum information processing, quantum communication and cryptography, quantum networking, linear-optical quantum computing; 

- Efficient quantum information processing in high-dimensional Hilbert spaces by coding it, manipulating, and detecting using complex recurrence and other algebraic functions;

- Quantum state engineering using parametric amplification in periodically polled nonlinear structures, entanglement manipulation and processing on a chip;

- Integrated micro-and nano-photonics, nonlinear parametric conversion for quantum information processing and modern PM-QPSK telecom signal manipulation and regeneration; 

- Ultra-Precise optical measurement in science and technology (Quantum Metrology), characterization of organic, polymer, and semiconductor structures used in modern nano-photonics and optoelectronics; 

- Dispersion cancellation and management, super-resolution phase sensors; Quantum nanoscale sensors, and sensor networks; 

- Precise characterization of polarization and chromatic dispersion in elements of 40Gb/s and 100 Gb/s metropolitan ROADM telecommunication networks including all-optical wavelength selective switches (WSS) and add-drop multiplexers; 

- Quantum and correlation imaging, aberration-free imaging and microscopy in life sciences; 

- High-performance single-photon detection and correlation measurement in a wide spectral range from ultraviolet to mid-infrared and terahertz;

- Quantum bio-photonics: novel approaches to optical characterization and diagnostic of biological materials and devices using quantum states of light including visible and infrared fluorescent correlation spectroscopy (FCS). 

- “Quantum Inspired” optical engineering and technology.
