QFARM Quantum Seminar Series presents "Millimeter-wave photons for quantum science"

Topic: 
Millimeter-wave photons for quantum science
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 12:00pm
Venue: 
Zoom meeting ID: 987 676 025; password required
Speaker: 
Aziza Suleymanzade (University of Chicago)
Abstract / Description: 

Millimeter-wave frequencies (30-300GHz) provide a promising platform for quantum information technology at less explored but potentially beneficial length and energy scales. In this talk, I will discuss the advantages of the mm-wave band and describe our hybrid quantum system for entangling and inter-converting single mm-wave and optical photons using Rydberg atoms as mediators. I will go over our experimental progress and potential applications of our system for frequency transduction and quantum nonlinear photonics. To conclude, I will describe some applications of mm-wave photons we have explored for 2D nonlinear devices, photonic crystals, and twisted mm-wave Fabry-Perot cavities.
