2013 MPL-uOttawa collaborative workshop

February 24, 2013 - February 27, 2013

Mont-Tremblant, Canada

In the run-up to the creation of the Max Planck-uOttawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics, international workshops were held to initiate research collaborations between the uOttawa CERC Research Group and the Leuchs Division of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light. The first of such meetings was an intense 4 day workshop intended to reinforce existing collaborations and kickstart many others.

Topics and presenters included

  • Maria Chekhova - Bright squeezed vacuum
  • Israel De Leon Aripez - Nonlinear Plasmonics
  • Mehul Malik - Quantum surveillance and OAM-QKD
  • Zhimin Shi - Ideas for joint projects
  • Timur Ishakov - More on bright squeezed vacuum
  • Jeremy Upham - Topics in nanophotonics
  • Ksenia Dolgaleva - III-V structures for quantum photonics
  • Jonathan Leach - Quantum Optics
  • Sangeeta Murugkar - Biophotonics
  • Eliot Bolduc - Popper’s experiment
  • Brandon Rodenburg - Atmospheric turbulence and QKD
