New advances on ultrafast quantum control of single molecules in the group led by Prof. Niek van Hulst.
In the initial ultrafast steps of photosynthesis nature exploits quantum mechanical phenomena, such as electronic coherences and entanglement, toachieve remarkably efficient excitation energy transfer and charge separation. But the intrinsic heterogeneity of biomolecules renders the investigation of these dynamic processes difficult by conventional ensemble approaches, and ultrafast single-molecule techniques have not been available until no
ICFO PhD Students Alberto G. Curto, Giorgio Volpe and Tim H. Taminiau, ICFO Research Fellow Dr. Mark P. Kreuzer, and ICFO Group Leaders and ICREA Prof. Romain Quidant and Prof. Niek van Hulst describe in Science a method to get unidirectional emission from single transmitters. Their results offer new possibilities to communicate energy to, from and between nano-emitters.
