Mohammad Hafezi

Hafezi, Mohammad


Research Interests: 
  • Quantum simulation:  investigation of existing condensed matter models and also novel quantum states in AMO systems, in particular photonic systems.
  • Optical communication and computation:  creating efficient and robust optical devices based on coherent control of light-matter interaction and novel quantum states, such as a topologically ordered one with built-in protection
  • Quantum hybrid systems:  investigating and explotiing interfaces between optical, microwave photons and atoms/solid state emitters that take advantage of each system's properties for quantum information processing
  • Opto-mechanics:  exploiting opto-mechanics in optical delay, on-chip isolation, precision measurement
Education: 

Professor Hafezi studied for two years at Sharif University before completing his undergraduate degree in  Physics from École Polytechnique.  He received his Ph.D. degree in physics from Harvard University in 2009.

Honors and Awards: 

Professor Hafezi is the recipient of a Sloan Research Fellowship (2015) and an ONR Young Investigator Award (2015).
