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.
- Routing of single photons
- Single-photon transistor based on a single atom.
- All-optical quantum gate.
- Ultra-sensitive measurements of surface interactions
Our group offers tracks for Ph.D. and M.Sc. studies in both Physics and Chemistry.
