Talk Title: Scalable Nanophotonics for Quantum and Classical Information Processing
Abstract: Technological commodities of the 21st century come with exponential demands on information processing. While the electronic devices face physical limits of scalability, nanophotonics emerges as a leading solution for the Big Data manipulation. In the first part of the seminar, I will discuss the role of novel photonic architectures and robust device design algorithms in meeting the short-term classical hardware speedup goals. Moving toward the implementation of quantum information processing paradigms, I will evaluate applicability of color centers in silicon carbide and diamond to quantum computing, communication and cryptography. Finally, I will present advances in integration of color centers with nanoscale photonic devices serving as efficient quantum bits and quantum light sources.
Biography: Marina Radulaski is a Nano- and Quantum Science and Engineering Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University\'s Ginzton Laboratory. She obtained a PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford University under the supervision of Prof. Jelena Vuckovic, a BSc/MSc in Physics from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, and a BSc/MSc in Computer Science from the Union University, Serbia. Marina was selected among the Rising Stars in EECS in 2017, Stanford Graduate Fellows 2012-2014, and Scientific American\'s \"30-Under-30 Up and Coming Physicists\" in 2012. She has performed research internationally at Berkeley Lab, Hewlett-Packard Labs, Oxford University, IQOQI Vienna, Helmholtz Center Berlin, and more. In addition to research, Marina enjoys building communities and promoting science through podcasts, videos and festivals.
