Research Areas

Dr. Dibos is an expert in nanofabrication and cryogenic measurement of low-dimensional optical nanostructures. His research interests include optical coupling of photonic and plasmonic nanocavities to atom-like defect centers in solid-state hosts. The goal is to modify the spectral properties, increase photon emission rates, and improve the photon collection efficiency for quantum information science applications. To that end, Dr. Dibos is a recent hire here at Argonne and works within two different divisions: (1) the Nanofabrication and Devices (NFD) group within Argonne’s Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) a DOE nanoscience user facility with a premier cleanroom, and (2) the Center for Molecular Engineering as a primary researcher on the DOE Quantum Link project investigating remote entanglement of solid-state spins at low temperatures connected via dedicated optical fiber.
