Prof. Pankaj K. Jha, Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, will give the inaugural seminar titled “Novel 2D-Materials and Heterostructures for Quantum Technologies” to kick off the Quantum Information Science and Engineering Seminar Series at Syracuse University.
Abstract: Novel materials are the backbone of quantum technologies of the 21st century. In this talk, 2D materials research in our lab will be discussed. The first part of the talk will be devoted to the generation of quantum light at room temperature using color centers in wide-band gap materials such as hexagonal boron nitride. Next, we will discuss our ongoing work on designing, fabricating, and testing iron chalcogenide-based 2D superconductors such as FeTe0.6Se0.4 for the next generation single photon detector at “higher” temperatures. I will conclude by sharing our research vision for harnessing these novel materials for many photon-starved applications such as quantum LiDAR, quantum imaging, quantum key distribution, etc. that require high system detection efficiencies.
