Our research interests include:
Graduate students Courtney Krafczyk, Rebecca Holmes, Michelle Victora and JJ Wong, and undergraduate Sheldon Schlie were the winners of the OSA Enabled by Optics contest with their video about the optics of fingerprint sensors! The video explains total internal reflection and other optics concepts with cartoons and demonstrations.
Third-year graduate student Michelle Victora was selected as a 2016-2017 Mavis Future Faculty Fellow by the College of Engineering. First-year graduate student Kristina Meier was awarded an NDSEG fellowship from the Department of Defense, and was also offered a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation. Congratulations!
We used entangled photons to test quantum non-locality in ways that were previously beyond experimental reach, and achieved the “most nonlocal” correlations ever reported.

Kwiat in Physical Review X.
