My research mainly concerns the quantum behavior of light with emphasis on multi-photon interference effects and quantum entanglement, quantum noise, precision measurement of phases, and interaction of photons with an collective ensemble of atoms for quantum state transfer. My recent emphasis is on quantum state transfer in frequency conversion via Raman process and parametric down-conversion process.
