Post-doc – Dipartimento di Fisica
Main research activities
Experimental quantum optics, quantum information, quantum communication, quantum causality, structured light and quantum foundations.
Gonzalo Carvacho joined the University of Rome “La Sapienza” as a PhD student in November 2014. His PhD thesis entitled “Multiphoton hybrid systems and their applications in quantum information and quantum communication” was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Sciarrino and was focused on experimental photonic protocols through several platforms.
Gonzalo obtained the Bachelor and Master’s degree in Physics at the University of Concepcion (Chile) with a thesis focused on the experimental implementation and stabilization of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer with optical fibers long 3.7 km. He also obtained a Physics Engineering Degree oriented on synthesis and characterization of semiconductor materials. His work at the time was followed by Prof. Xavier. Before he enrolled to the PhD program in Rome, Gonzalo worked as research assistant in the University of Concepcion and performed an internship in the Atomic Center of Bariloche (Argentina).
Currently his postdoctoral activities are focused in Quantum causality, Quantum communication and multiphoton dynamics by exploiting bulk optics, photonic integrated devices and G/Q-plates for structured light.
Gonzalo Carvacho is author of 28 publications in scientific journals, including 1 Nature, 1 Nature Physics, 1 Science Advances, 3 Nature Communications and 3 Physical Review Letters, with an h-index 12 and overall citation of 416 in Google scholar.
