The group focuses on micro and nanofabrication of electronic and photonic hybrid devices for quantum information technologies. A solid state approach is fostered towards the realization of single photon emitters (SPEs), cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED), single photon detectors (SPDs), random number generators (RNDs) or physical unclonable functions (PUFs). The group also collaborates successfully with the Centre of Astrobiology (CAB-INTA-CSIC) in the development of Kinetic Inductance Superconducting Detectors (KIDs) for space exploration.
The following research lines are currently pursued:
1) Exploring novel patterning routes to tailor the properties of 2D materials such Graphene or Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDCs).
2) Development of Single Photon Emitters (SPEs) optically or electronically driven. Currently studying 2D Materials (WSe2, WS2, MoS2) and Nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond.
3) Seeking Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics effects directly onto 2D materials.
4) Micro and Nanofabrication of Kinetic Inductance Detectors for Space exploration.
5) Quantum Security: Development of Random Number Generators and Physical Unclonable Functions.
