Title: Low loss photonic systems for advanced quantum measurements

Abstract: Low attenuation is an essential feature of an optical system as it supports robust distribution of various signals over large distances as well as high fidelity processing and characterization of the signals by optical means. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has utilized low loss photonic links for the frequency and time distribution in the NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) since the late 1970s. Recent developments of the transparent nonlinear optical systems attracted our attention to the development of photonic configurations that can be beneficial for both DSN and other applications. In this presentation I will describe a few recent developments that utilize low loss photonic components in clocks, oscillators, gyroscopes, as well as opto-mechanical and E-field sensors. Also, I will discuss usefulness of the nonlinear photonics for studying solid state and quantum phenomena.

About the Speaker: Andrey Matsko has been a Technical Supervisor of the Frequency & Timing Advanced Instrument Development Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech, since 2019. He was a Chief Technology Officer as well as a Principal Engineer with OEwaves Inc. prior to that. He also held a position of Principal Member of Technical Stuff with the Quantum Sciences and Technology Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech and received post-doctoral training at the Department of Physics, Texas A&M University. His current research interests include, but are not restricted to, the development of novel oscillators and clocks as well as studies of resonant phenomena in nonlinear and quantum systems. He is author of more than 200 peer reviewed articles and inventor in more than 40 U.S. patents. He is a Fellow of IEEE, SPIE, OSA and APS.
