WEIZMANN QUANTUM OPTICS GROUP
Home People Publications Teaching Contact
 


In our group we investigate Quantum Optics by exploring interactions between single photons and single atoms.

We achieve this by coupling single, laser-cooled Rb atoms to high-quality chip-based optical micro-resonators.
By confining light in such a small volume, the electric field of even a single photon is enhanced to a level that allows
coherent interaction with a single atom.

Research Projects:

    - Routing of single photons

    - Single-photon transistor based on a single atom.

    - All-optical quantum gate.

    - Ultra-sensitive measurements of surface interactions
      and nano-structures.

Our group offers tracks for Ph.D. and M.Sc. studies in both Physics and Chemistry.
