Applied Physics/Physics Colloquium

Exploring New Frontiers of Quantum Optical Science
Tuesday, May 17, 2016 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Hewlett 201
Mikhail Lukin (Harvard University)
Abstract / Description: 

I will discuss recent developments at a new scientific interface between quantum optics, nanoscience and quantum information science. Specific examples include the use of quantum optical techniques for manipulation of individual atom-like impurities at a nanoscale and for realization of hybrid systems combining them with nanophotonic devices. I will discuss how these techniques are used for exploring quantum nonlinear optics and quantum networks, probing non-equilibrium quantum dynamics, and developing new applications such as magnetic resonance imaging with single atom resolution, and nanoscale sensing in biology and material science.


Held Tuesdays at 4:30 pm in the William R. Hewlett Teaching Center, room 201.

Refreshments in the lobby of Varian Physics at 4:15 pm.

Spring 2015/2016, Committee: M. Schleier-Smith (Chair), G. Gratta, B. Lev, S. Zhang
