    Plasmonics nanostructures are becoming remarkably important as tools towards manipulating photons at the nanoscale. They are poised to revolutionize a wide range of applications ranging from integrated optical circuits, ...
  • Geiselmann, Michael Wolfgang (Date of defense: 10-04-2014)
    The efficient interaction of photons with single quantum emitters like nitrogen vacancy (NV) centres is essential for the elaboration of future integrated quantum optical devices. A promising strategy towards this goal ...
  • Muñoz Gil, Gorka (Date of defense: 09-11-2020)
    Diffusion refers to numerous phenomena, by which particles and bodies of all kinds move throughout any kind of material, has emerged as one of the most prominent subjects in the study of complex systems. Motivated by the ...
  • Wolfgramm, Florian (Date of defense: 29-06-2012)
    The use of light, especially of laser light, is in many cases the most sensitive way to perform measurements. However, the highest sensitivity that can be achieved with laser light as probe is bounded by the standard quantum ...
  • Buades, Bárbara (Date of defense: 31-07-2018)
    Attoscience aims to study electron dynamics in matter with unprecedented temporal resolution by using the shortest pulses generated on Earth. Currently, such resolution is only provided by sources that deliver attosecond ...
  • Salavrakos, Alexia (Date of defense: 26-03-2019)
    The technological era that we live in is sometimes described as the Information Age. Colossal amounts of data are generated every day and considerable effort is put into creating technologies to process, store and transmit ...
  • Mestres Junqué, Pau (Date of defense: 07-09-2017)
    Optical trapping and manipulation have emerged as powerful tools to investigate single microscopic objects in a controlled environment. Using the momentum carried by light, forces can be exerted to confine and manipulate ...
  • Baccari, Flavio (Date of defense: 17-05-2019)
    Quantum physics is arguably both the most successful and the most counterintuitive physical theory of all times. Its extremely accurate predictions on the behaviour of microscopic particles have led to unprecedented ...
  • Sainz, Ana Belén (Date of defense: 10-02-2014)
    In the past century, experimental discoveries have witnessed phenomena in Nature which challenge our everyday classical intuition. In order to explain these facts, quantum theory was developed, which so far has been able ...
  • Tura i Brugués, Jordi (Date of defense: 20-07-2015)
    Entanglement and nonlocal correlations constitute two fundamental resources for quantum information processing, as they allow for novel tasks that are otherwise impossible in a classical scenario. However, their elusive ...
  • Rueda Delgado, Diana Paola (Date of defense: 30-07-2019)
