Assoc Prof Carole Emilie Diederichs

Carole Diederichs is an Associate Professor at University Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC, France). She graduated from UPMC with a PhD in Quantum Physics in 2007. She did her PhD studies at Laboratoire Pierre Aigrain (LPA, France) on the optical parametric oscillation in semiconductor microcavities for the generation of twin photons. In 2006, she received the IUPAP Young Author Best Paper Award and in 2007, the Michelin Young Researcher Award from the French Society of Physics (SFP). After her post-doctoral research at the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, USA), she joined UPMC as an Associate Professor in 2008, to work on the optical spectroscopy of single semiconductor InAs/GaAs quantum dots in the Coherent and Non-Linear Optics group at LPA. Her research activity focused on quantum optics experiments for the realization of indistinguishable single photon sources. Since 2016, she is a Visiting Associate Professor in the group of Prof. Qihua Xiong at SPMS (NTU). Her research interest at NTU focuses on the optical properties of single inorganic perovskite quantum dots and on the strong light-matter coupling in inorganic perovskite. In December 2016, she obtained the French Habilitation of University Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC).
