We explore the light-matter-interaction in atomically thin layers of nanomaterials, tailor their optical response, and leverage their properties for applications in quantum technology and photonics. Key materials are transition-metal dichalcogenides and hexagonal Boron-Nitride , which have enormous optical activity, exhibit complex behaviour, many-body quantum effects and strong interaction with the environment.
Our research aims to fully characterize and understand these interactions, and to demonstrate use-cases in real-world application scenarios. We do so by integrating 2D-materials in waveguides and optical resonator into robust quantum system. We use them to create quantum states or light and explore their connection to quantum computers.
