Julien Laurat obtained his Ph.D. (2004) in quantum optics at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. After one year at the Institut d’Optique-Graduate School in Orsay and a two-year Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship at the California Institute of Technology, he returned in 2007 to Paris as an associate professor. He is a member of the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel (Université P. et M. Curie, Ecole Normale, and CNRS). His main research interests are focused into quantum netwoking, ranging from the light-matter interface to entanglement generation and purification.

Quantum Information

Viewpoint: Heralding the storage of light

This design of atomic quantum memory tells us when a pulse of light has been successfully stored and then proceeds to retrieve it without significantly affecting its polarization. The exquisite operation provides a new capability for quantum information networks. Read More »
