About the department
Adaptive Quantum Optics (AQO) combines adaptive methods to counteract or even exploit disorder in nanophotonic systems in combination with quantum states of light. Within AQO, we employ adaptive systems designed to compensate for fluctuations and randomness inherent in nanophotonic structures. Whether exploring natural or artificial multiple-scattering photonic media or engineered nanophotonic structures, we strive to uncover the underlying principles that govern their behavior.
AQO stands as a beacon at the intersection of quantum optics, nanooptics, and security, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a commitment to pushing the boundaries of scientific exploration.
About the organisation
The Faculty of Science & Technology (Technische Natuurwetenschappen, TNW) engages some 700 staff members and 2000 students in education and research on the cutting edge of chemical technology, applied physics and biomedical technology. Our fields of application include sustainable energy, process technology and materials science, nanotechnology and technical medicine. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally and is strengthened by the many young researchers working on innovative projects with as doctoral candidates and post-docs. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
