Lecture "Quantum Imaging"

On 21.-23.11.2019 Christophe Moser, Professor of Optics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow visited our institute.
He has held the Kelvin Chair of Natural Philosophy since 2011and has been Vice Principal for Research at Glasgow since 2014.
Padgett was educated at the University of Manchester, the University of York, the University of St Andrews and Trinity College, Cambridgewhere he was awarded a PhD in 1988.
Working with Les Allen, Padgett conducted pioneering work on optical angular momentum, for which they were awarded in 2009 the Young Medal.
The research group he leads is best known for its work on the fundamental properties of light's angular momentum, including optical tweezers and optical spanners, the use of orbital angular momentum states to extend the alphabet of optical communication (with both classical and quantum light), and demonstrations of an angular form of the EPR paradox. Padgett's research has been published in leading peer reviewed scientific journals including Science, Nature, Physical Review Letters, and Optics Express and Progress in Optics.  Padgett's research has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Padgett was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (FRSE) in 2001, in 2011 he was elected to fellowship of the Optical Society and in 2012 to fellowship of SPIE. In 2014 he was elected to fellowship of the Royal Society of London – the UK's national academy.  
In 2009, with Les Allen, he won the Institute of Physics' Young Medal and in 2014 Padgett was awarded the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Lord Kelvin Medal. In 2015 he won the Science of Light Prize from the European Physical Society, in 2017 the Max Born Award of the OSA and in 2019 the Rumford Medal of the Royal Society.
Professor Miles Padgett visited our laboratories, he met scientists working on a similar topic and he gave lecture "Quantum Imaging"  that was visited more than 40 scientists. After the lecture, a fruitfull discussion with the scientists took place.
