Quantum optics is my main research interest, that is, quantum coherence and interference effects in the interaction if light with atoms or solid state materials. Our recent investigation of information storage and transfer between light and matter ("light stopping") leads to the present studies on implementing similar quantum and nonlinear techniques in gases and semiconductor nano-structures, such as quantum wells, quantum dots, and excitons. In related work, we study the effects of optically very dense media on a light field. We are interested in complex problems such as super- and subradiance using a novel formalism. We are also working on the theoretical part of a project creating a quantum cryptographical multi-user fiber setup, employing a novel time-frequency coding technique.
