Scientific research can be a slow and laborious process. The absolutely final step in the process is to then communicate your exciting scientific findings to other scientists both in and outside of your field. Yet it is often at this final step where the least amount of time is spent.

Crafting high-dimensional tools for photonic quantum networks with tailored nonlinear optics
John Donohue, Institute for Quantum Computing
The time-frequency degree of freedom of light offers an intrinsically high-dimensional encoding space which is naturally compatible with waveguide devices and fiber infrastructure. However, coherent manipulation and measurement the information-carrying modes presents a challenge due to the sub-picosecond timescales inherent to downconversion-based photon sources. In this talk, I will discuss methods based on ultrafast pulse shaping and sum-frequency generation to address these temporal modes.
