Dr. Markus Gräfe is a junior group leader at the Institute of Applied Physics and at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena.
Photonics is one of the main enablers for quantum technology. In this context non-classical states of light, in particular photon pairs, allow novel concepts for imaging and sensing beyond classical limitations. Moreover, as quantum information carriers, photons are the essential building block for photonic quantum simulation and computing. Dr. Gräfe’s research focusses on entanglement, correlation, and interferometer based quantum imaging techniques as well as on integrated quantum photonics including quantum walks of photon pairs and their non-classical correlations. His research topics include:
Dr. Gräfe currently teaches the following Master courses at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena:
