"If doing mathematics or science is looked upon
as a game, then one might say that
in mathematics you
compete against yourself or other mathematicians;
in
physics your adversary is nature and the stakes are higher."
"Jeśli zajmowanie się matematyką lub nauką
potraktować jako grę, to można powiedzieć, że
w matematyce
konkuruje się ze sobą lub innymi matematykami,
a w fizyce
przeciwnikiem jest przyroda i [dlatego] stawka jest wyższa."

 Research interests

I have been doing research in the following interrelated research
fields: quantum optics, quantum information (including
linearoptical quantum information processing), cavity quantum
electrodynamics (QED), circuit QED (with superconducting quantum
circuits), microwave photonics, quantum cryptography, quantum
dissipative engineering, nonHermitian quantum mechanics,
classical nonlinear optics, quantum optomechanics, NMR
spectroscopy, and nanoscience (with quantum dots and quantum
wells). I am a theoretician, but I closely collaborate with
experimentalists on linear quantum optics and NMR spectroscopy. In
particular, I studied: fundamental tests of quantum mechanics,
quantumtoclassical transitions, optical and solidstate
implementations of quantum gates, quantum entanglement, quantum
nonlocality (via Bell inequalities), detection of nonclassicality
of optical fields, generation of Schrödinger cat states,
generation of nonclassical light, photon antibunching, cavity
light squeezing, spin squeezing, photon and phonon blockade
effects, exceptional points, coherence and decoherence control,
quantum cloning, quantum phase problem, Raman scattering, and
paradoxes of quantum physics. More specifically:
 Quantum state engineering with light and atoms

Generation and manipulation of the states of light interacting
with natural and artificial atoms, including quantum dots,
superconducting qubits in optical, superconducting and
nanomechanical resonators. Quantum state and process tomography.
Photon and phonon blockades (opticalstate truncation methods).
Conditional photoncount measurements.
 Nanoscience

Entangled networks of quantum dots in microcavities. Quantum
operations (including quantum gates and tomography) of
semiconductor quantum wells using NMR methods. Quantum limits of
nanomechanical resonators. Hybrid nanosystems.

based on quantum dots and cavity QED. Teleportation protocols.
 Nonclassical light

Generation of quantum light with the reduced quantum noise
(subPoissonian, antibunched and squeezed light). Generation of
quantum superpositions of macroscopically distinct states
(Schrödinger cats and kittens). Interaction of quantumoptical
fields with nonlinear media. Photon statistics. Photon blockade
and phonon blockade.
 Quantum entanglement and nonlocality

Criteria, measures, and paradoxes of quantum entanglement and Bell
nonlocality for twoqubit systems. Spatial and temporal quantum

 Phase problem, coherence, and decoherence

Quantum phase properties of nonlinear optical phenomena within
various approaches, including the PeggBarnett, GarrisonWong and
phasespace formalisms. Coherence control. Systems preserving or
enhancing coherence.

Hilbert spaces. Analysis of their properties and possibilities of
generation.

and distance; a unified description of nonclassicality and
entanglement. Classical trajectories.
