The Laboratory of Quantum Statistical Optics has recognized expertise in theory and physics of various phenomena related to statistics of light-matter interaction. Our laboratory investigated spectroscopy of intensity fluctuations in atomic non-linear optics. An important contribution to better understanding of the laser radiation statistics was made by our group, when we suggested the sub-Poissonian laser with regular excitation of working medium. The first demonstrations in mid 80'th of non-classical states of bright coherent light (sub-Poissonian, squeezed etc.) with suppressed quantum fluctuations stimulated our active theoretical research in this direction, including the concept of photon-noise-free light wave fronts and quantum imaging. The idea to introduce optical parallelism, coming from quantum imaging, to the schemes of quantum information, such as quantum teleportation, super dense coding, quantum memory etc., is stimulating our current research.
We deliver to our students and graduate students courses in such areas as quantum theory of laser fluctuations and non-classical light, optical methods of quantum information, cold atoms and others. The students are actively involved into research, the graduate students participate in international collaboration with leading groups in the field and have a possibility to visit international scientific meetings and schools.
