Research in Prof. M. Vasilyev's group

Our group works on nonlinear and quantum optics, optical communication systems and devices, and nanophotonics.

Current and Past Research Projects in Optical Communications

Interests: ultra-high-capacity and ultra-long-reach transmission systems and networks, novel optical amplifiers, all-optical regenerators and signal processors, new modulation formats.

Phase-sensitive fiber amplifiers

All-optical signal processing
(under construction)

All-optical networking


Symmetric dispersion-managed fiber (DMF)

Current and Past Research Projects in Quantum Optics

Interests: manipulation of quantum properties of light (quantum information processing); generation, characterization, and application of non-classical states of light (e.g. squeezed, twin-beam, or entangled states).

Noiseless optical amplification of images

Long-distance quantum communications using photonic qudits (under construction)

Quantum noise of optical solitons

Current and Past Research Projects in Nanophotonics

Interests: nonlinear-optical effects, classical and quantum information processing in micro- and nanoscale structures.
