Vacuum Friction

    We discovered the existence of a singular resonance in moving media that leads to giant enhancement of vacuum fluctuations.

Quantum Pulse Scattering Theory

    We have developed a theoretical framework to understand Fock state pulses interacting with defects in spin systems with long-range interactions.

Single Photon Detectors

    Modeling and design of the next generation of detectors exploiting phase transitions.
