Welcome to the website of MaLab in the School of Physics at Nanjing University! Our group focuses on the experimental quantum information processing and fundamental aspects of quantum physics via advanced quantum photonic techniques.
Many groundbreaking experiments in the foundations of quantum physics have been realized with photonic systems. These experiments triggered a completely new field—quantum technology—which has and will continue to make the big impact on society. Quantum technology harnesses the ‘spooky’ phenomena of quantum physics such as superposition, randomness and entanglement to process information in a novel way. Quantum photonics provides a promising path for both delivering quantum-enhanced technologies and exploring fundamental physics. The spectrum of our research covers experimental quantum communication, simulation and the foundations of quantum physics.
