Overview Rydberg Atoms

The group of Ofer Firstenberg is studying quantum optics with hot and cold atoms.

Can individual photons behave like conventional particles, such as electrons and atoms? Can atoms behave akin to light?

The Firstenberg group studies these manifestations. Visit our website to find how we push photons to form molecules and crystals, how we make mirrors and cavities out of light, how atoms diffract and interfere, and how light diffuses.
