Dr. Birgit Stiller 15.09.2017
The University of Sydney, Australia -
hosted by: Gerhard Rempe
Visiting the Quantum Dynamics Division on September 15, 2017.
Sonder-Kolloquium am Freitag, den 15.09.2017:
"Brillouin-based light storage in a photonic circuit"
Birgit Stiller obtained her doctoral degree in Nonlinear Fiber Optics at the CNRS Research Institute FEMTO-ST, Besançon, France where she was working on Brillouin scattering in photonic crystal fibers and fiber sensor applications. From October 2012 on, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany, in the quantum optics division of Prof. Gerd Leuchs. In June 2015, she joint the University of Sydney as a Research Fellow in the Nonlinear Phononics group. Her research interests include nonlinear fiber optics, photon-phonon interactions in integrated circuits and optical fibers, fiber sensors, as well as quantum communication, specifically quantum key distribution and quantum hacking.
