"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."
[Mark Kac, "Enigmas of chance"]

Research interests
I have been doing research in theoretical nonlinear and quantum optics, quantum computation and information, quantum cryptography, nanoscience, and atom optics. In particular, I have been working on the following research topics:
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 (optical-state truncation methods). Conditional photon-count 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.
Quantum information processing and quantum cryptography
Solid-state implementations of quantum computers and cryptosystems based on quantum dots and cavity QED. Teleportation protocols.
Nonclassical light
Generation of quantum light with the reduced quantum noise (sub-Poissonian, antibunched and squeezed light). Generation of quantum superpositions of macroscopically distinct states (Schrödinger cats and kittens). Interaction of quantum-optical fields with nonlinear media. Photon statistics.
Quantum entanglement and nonlocality
Criteria, measures, and paradoxes of quantum entanglement and Bell nonlocality for two-qubit systems. Spatial and temporal quantum steering.
