Main research activities
Experimental quantum optics, quantum information, quantum metrology.
The research activity of Valeria Cimini is focused on the development of quantum metrology protocols aimed at the realization of quantum photonic sensors. During the PhD period, she worked on the generation, manipulation, and characterization of photonic quantum states mainly for phase estimation experiments both in the single and multi-parameter regime. Her scientific interests followed two main directions. On one hand, she worked on the development of quantum photonic technologies based on single-photon states and their application to study chemical or biological processes. On the other hand, she exploited machine learning algorithms for the characterization of complex and high-dimensional quantum states. Currently, she is working on quantum metrology in the continuous variable regime.
Valeria Cimini is the author of 17 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, including 2 Physical Review Letters, 1 Physical Review X Quantum, 1 npj Quantum Information, 1 Optica with an h-index of 5 according to Web of Science (6 in Google scholar).
