About the Author:

Dr. Francisco Elohim Becerra received his M.S. in 2005 and his Ph.D. in 2009 in Physics at the Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Avanzados, Mexico. He performed his Ph.D. research at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) at the University of Maryland in the area of quantum optics with atomic ensembles. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, from 2010 to 2013 performing research in quantum measurements and nonconventional detection methods. In 2013, he joined the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of New Mexico (UNM) as an Assistant Professor. His current research involves quantum measurements of light for efficient communications, and quantum optics and atom-photon interfaces for long distance quantum communication.
