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.
