Quantum simulation and entanglement engineering in quantum cascade laser frequency combs

Project description

A new type of quantum simulator platform

Imagine a quantum simulator platform made of ultracold atoms in tailored optical lattices. The EU-funded Qombs project will create it. Specifically, the project aims to design and engineer a new generation of quantum cascade laser frequency combs. This unprecedented quantum simulation of semiconductor structures will endow the devices with brand new features, like non-classical emission modes, entanglement among the modes of the comb and parametric generation of comb patterns far from the central emission frequency. Backed by a consortium of experienced researchers and experts in the physics of ultracold atoms and quantum optics, the project aims to move from the fundamental quantum simulation protocols to prototypes and eventually to the industrial production and commercialisation of new devices.
