Sara Ducci is a professor at Université Paris Cité and a member of the Research Unit Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques (UPCIté/CNRS). She obtained her PhD in physics from the University of Florence (Italy) in 2000, with a thesis on the formation of spatial structures in a nonlinear optical system. After a postdoctoral fellowship in quantum optics at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel and a temporary teaching and research position at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan, she joined the Université Paris Diderot (now Université Paris Cité) in 2002. She is in charge of a research team working on miniaturized semiconductor sources of quantum light states, ranging from device development and fundamental quantum optics research to applications in the field of quantum information.
She is also President of the Scientific Council of the Physics Department, Associated Editor for the Journal Optica and co-director of a Graduate School focused on Quantum Technologies.
She was awarded the Prix Louis Ancel by the French Physical Society in 2016, and is an honorary member of the Institut Universitaire de France
