We design and grow rare-earth doped crystals in which we aim at controlling optical and spin non-classical states. These materials, produced in the form of bulk and nanostructured single crystals, show extremely long-lived quantum states at low temperatures. This unique property in the solid-state enables us to address a broad range of applications, from quantum information processing and communication, to spectral analysis and medical imaging.

We belong to the Material for Photonics and Opto-Electronics team of the Institut de Recherche de Chimie Paris. The Institute is a joint unit between Chimie ParisTech graduate school and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.
