CV

Sara Ducci received her Laurea degree (Summa cum Laude) in 1996 and her PhD diploma in Physics in 2000 at the University of Florence, Italy. After one year as postdoc at Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, Paris (2000-2001) and a one year as temporary assistant professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure Cachan (2001-2002), in 2002 she has been appointed as Assistant Professor at the Université Paris Diderot, where she has become Full Professor in 2008. She has worked on pattern formation in nonlinear optical systems and spatial quantum correlations in optical parametric oscillators. Her present interests are focused on integrated quantum photonics for quantum information (semiconductor sources of two-photon states, quantum photonic circuits) and optical parametric generation in AlGaAs heterostructures and microcavities. She is the head of the Master program ‘Quantum Devices’ of the University Paris Diderot and Ecole Polytechnique and she is French coordinator of the international Master Program ‘Nanotechnologies and Quantum Devices’. She is member of the optics division of the National Council of the Universities, of the Council of the Faculty of Physics and coordinator of the Photonic axe of the "Science and Engineering for Advanced Materials and devices" Lab of Excellence.
