Girish Agarwal


Professor Agarwal received M.S. from Banaras Hindu University in 1966, and a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 1969. He specializes primarily in quantum optics and broadly in quantum physics. The theoretical work focuses on quantum effects in hybrid systems; quantum phase transitions and collective effects in cavities driven by squeezed light; Frohlich condensates; coupling of quantum emitters to meta materials; chiral quantum systems. The experimental effort based on super-resolution microscopy, quantum sensing and is focused towards bio-photonics applications.
