PhD topic and brief description

  • Building upon recent breakthroughs here at IBM in material and fabrication capabilities with GaP and BaTiO3, we are investigating direct microwave-to-optical conversion via electrooptic coupling. We exploit the large Pockels coefficient in these exceptional optical materials to couple the modes of a microwave cavity and an optical cavity. The ultimate goal is to quantum-coherently and bi-directionally interconvert microwave and optical qubits.
