Universität Bern
The University of Bern was founded in 1834 and is located in the center of the Swiss capital. The University has nowadays about 7000 employees and 17500 students and feels obliged to bring about benefits for science, society and the economy.

The Quantum Optics Laboratory  (QOL) at the University of Bern belongs to the Institute of Applied Physics. The laboratory is part of the Laser Physics division where the main activities cover quantum optics, THz-science, ultrafast spectroscopy, optical fibers and fiber lasers, and soft x-ray lasers.


The main activity of the QOL lies in the applications of entangled photons for quantum information, metrology and spectroscopy. Besides the generation and characterization of entangled states in high-dimensional Hilbert spaces, these activities involve in particular entangled two-photon absorption measurements, the propagation of entangled photons through scattering media and imaging by entangled photons.

The main task of the QOL within SUPERTWIN is to define and experimentally apply new methods to characterize the entangled photon sources that will be developed in the project.
