May 15, 2017 - Gloria Cordova
CQuIC faculty member F. Elohim Becerra Chavez has been awarded a prestigious, five-year NSF Career Award. Elohim’s project, entitled Quantum Measurements for Optical Communications, is aimed at investigating unconventional measurements of the coherent states of light produced by a laser, to maximize the measurement sensitivity and thus enhance information transfer in communication channels, and at developing methods for overcoming the noise and loss that plague realistic communication channels. Congratulations, Elohim!
