Alexander has completed his PhD with Assoc. Professor Gabriel Molina-Terriza at Macquarie University.
His research involved plasmonic nanostructures which are a promising pathway to combine the worlds of light-based and electronic information technology. Alexander's aim was to study and control those structures with engineered states of entangled light.
Alexander hopes to gain deeper insights into fundamental aspects of quantum physics like entanglement and quantum interference. Using specifically engineered states of non-classical light for interaction with plasmonic nano-structures, this could potentially lead to the development of new quantum metrology schemes.
Diplom (five years), Technische Universität München, Germany
