Ngoc Diep Lai0000-0002-1429-683X
Ngoc Diep Lai obtained a Ph.D. degree in laser physics at the University of Rennes 1, Rennes, France. He joined the National Chung Cheng University, Taiwan, for starting his first Postdoctoral Research. His work focused on studies of nonlinear properties of polymer materials and nanotechnologies for fabrication of polymer-based photonic crystals. In 2007, he joined the Quantum Nanophotonics Research Group in the Laboratoire de Photonique Quantique et Moleculaire (LPQM), Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan (ENS Cachan), France. He worked towards the optimization of single photons source, coherent manipulation of single-electron spin associated to color center in diamond, and superresolution imaging techniques. He is hired in 2009 at ENS Cachan as an Associate Professor (Maitre de Conferences). His expertise includes quantum optics: single-photon source and electron spin resonance; micro- and nanofabrication: interference and direct laser writing; photonics crystals and super-resolution imaging; nonlinear optics: quasi-phase matching, polymer, and nonlinear photonic crystals; solid state laser: two-frequency laser, Lidar-radar, and THz generation. His current research focuses on optical coupling of nanoparticles (single quantum center, Gold, and nonlinear particles) into nanophotonic systems and also on optical nanotechnology for imaging and fabrication of desired photonic structures at nanometer scale.
