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.
