Thinner than light...
|The research group "Applied Quantum Physics" works with glass fibers having a diameter smaller than the wavelength of the guided light. The special properties of these glass fibers make them suitable for using them as a “quantum laboratory”.|
Yijian Meng joined our group as a PhD student for the nanofiber trap experiment. Welcome!
Our paper on 'Storage of fiber-guided light in a nanofiber-trapped ensemble of cold atoms' was published in Optica. This lead to an article in the Vienna newspaper 'Der Standard'.
