Exploring atom-light interactions for quantum simulation

Thursdays at 3:00 pm in Art and Design Building, Room 2003

Abstract:

Throughout the rich history of atomic physics, interactions between light and matter have been used for everything from studying basic problems in quantum mechanics, to building accurate clocks, to identifying astronomical bodies.  Armed with a toolbox full of ways to precisely manipulate and measure atomic systems, recent …
