LMI Seminar: From Hanbury-Brown and Twiss to photon correlation enhanced spectroscopy and microscopy
Prof. Dan Oron, Weizmann Institute of Science
When Hanbury-Brown and Twiss proposed to use photon correlations for stellar interferometry in 1954 the idea was received with great skepticism. Yet, the use of photon correlations for various uses, from identification of quantum emitters to emitter counting grew over the years. In the talk, I will describe some of our efforts in using HBT correlations and their derivatives in superresolution microscopy and in advanced spectroscopy of quantum emitters, as well as the technological advances enabling this.
