New POLIMA PhD student
In the spring, Nikolaos Kyvelos has started as PhD in POLIMA.
As a PhD student in POLIMA, Nikolaos Kyvelos will continue his research journey, leveraging his expertise in the investigation of light-matter interactions, with a particular emphasis on polaritons in the strong coupling regime. His goal is to actively participate in the second quantum revolution by combining numerical methods of Computational Physics, Nanophotonics, Quantum Optics, and Condensed Matter Physics for the development of photonic quantum technologies.
Nikolaos has an educational background in physics, holding a Bachelor's degree in Physics with a specialization in Theoretical and Computational Physics. He furthered his studies by obtaining a Master's degree from the department of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences from National Technical University of Athens School, focusing on Quantum Photonics. Throughout his academic journey, Nikolaos has gained valuable knowledge and experience in the field of Quantum Optics and Nanophotonics. His interest in quantum technology led him to work on his diploma thesis, where he studied entanglement measures in bipartite quantum systems. Fascinated by the fundamental nature of quantum entanglement and its role in quantum technology, Nikolaos decided to pursue research in Quantum Photonics during his Master's degree. His master's thesis centered around the phenomenon of quantum interference in a three-level V-type quantum emitter in the presenceof bismuth-chalcogenide microparticles. He has also extensively utilized finite element method (Comsol Multiphysics) and Matlab to develop numerical models for Quantum Optics and Nanophotonics applications.
Nikolaos's PhD position is funded by the POLIMA Center of Excellence grant from the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF).
