IQIM Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Seminar

Chains of atoms coupled to a nanofiber waveguide

Speaker: Jean-baptiste Béguin, QUANTOP - Danish Center for Quantum Optics, Niels Bohr Institute
Location: East Bridge 114

Abstract: Quantum superpositions, squeezed states and multipartite entanglement are features of the quantum world which are central for the future development of quantum information processing and metrology. I will present simple tools and our latest observations in the experimental exploration of these phenomena with one-dimensional arrays of cold atoms coupled to the light guided by an optical nanofiber.

The sub-wavelength geometry of the nanofiber interface is also an opportunity to improve our control on how light can be scattered by several atoms. I will then give some details about our recent realisation of a switchable mirror made of a few atoms.
