The outside Advisory Council consists of 4 experts in the field from outside of Harvard University. They review the center annually and provides a report to the University. This includes, for example, a review of the selection of postdocs (Postdoc Program). Selection of the Advisory Council is done by the Director and requires a unanimous vote of the Scientific Board.

Atac-Imamoglu-75x75

Atac Imamoglu

Professor Doctor

Experimental Quantum Optics / ETH Zurich

The Imamoglu group investigates quantum optics of solid-state zero dimensional emitters, such as quantum dots or defects, embedded in photonic nano-structures. They are particularly interested in understanding physical properties that distinguish these solid-state systems from their atomic counterparts...

The Imamoglu group investigates quantum optics of solid-state zero dimensional emitters, such as quantum dots or defects, embedded in photonic nano-structures. They are particularly interested in understanding physical properties that distinguish these solid-state systems from their atomic counterparts. Controlling quantum dynamics of quantum dot spins for applications in quantum information processing is one of our principal goals.

Alain Aspect

Professor and Senior Scientist

Experimental Quantum Optics with Photons and Atoms / CNRS senior scientist and professor, Institut d’Optique and Ecole Polytechnique

Prof. Aspect has carried out several tests of the foundations of quantum mechanics: violation of Bell’s inequalities with pairs of entangled photons, wave particle duality and Wheeler’s delayed choice experiment with single photons...

Experimental Quantum Optics with Photons and Atoms / CNRS senior scientist and professor, Institut d’Optique and Ecole Polytechnique

Prof. Aspect has carried out several tests of the foundations of quantum mechanics: violation of Bell’s inequalities with pairs of entangled photons, wave particle duality and Wheeler’s delayed choice experiment with single photons. After contributing to the development of laser cooling of atoms (laser cooling below the single photon recoil velocity), he is now involved in Quantum Atom Optics (atomic Hanbury Brown and Twiss effect, correlated atom pairs) and quantum simulators with ultra cold atoms (Anderson localization).

Experimental Quantum Optics / Caltech

The primary goal of Kimble Group research is to study the quantum mechanics of open systems. “Real-world” quantum mechanics takes into account the dissipation and decoherence that arise from interactions of a quantum system with its environment. In studying the role of these processes, we learn about what is and might be possible: how we might make, study, and preserve quantum superpositions and other exotic states.
