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), under the supervision of Jérôme Tignon, on the optical parametric oscillation in semiconductor microcavities for the generation of twin photons. In 2007, she received 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 Assistant 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. She is currently a Visiting Associate Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore) in the group of Prof. Qihua Xiong (NTU-SPMS-PAP), and also a member of MajuLab (UMI 3654 - CNRS-UNS-NUS-NTU).
Research interest: nanophotonics, semiconductor physics, optical spectroscopy, quantum optics.
