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”.|
Jan Petersen was awarded a ESG-Nano-Prize of the Erwin Schrödinger Society for Nanosciences for his work "Chiral nanophotonic waveguide interface based on spin-orbit interaction of light" which was published in Science 346, 67 (2014). Congratulations!
Dr. Alexandre Dareau joined our group as a PostDoc. He obtained his PhD at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel in the group of Fabrice Gerbier working on 'Coherent manipulation of an ytterbium Bose-Einstein condensate on the "clock" transition'. He will be working on the nanofiber-based atom trap. Welcome!
Our paper 'Nanofiber-based all-optical switches' appeared in Phys. Rev. A. 93, 013849
Dr. Adele Hilico was awarded with a Lise-Meitner-Fellowship by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). Adarsh Shankar Prasad was awarded with a doctoral fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Congratulations!
Our paper 'Nanophotonic Optical Isolator Controlled by the Internal State of Cold Atoms' was published in Phys. Rev. X 5, 041036
Our article on 'Directional spontaneous emission and lateral Casimir-Polder force on an atom close to a nanofiber' was published in Physical Review A.
Dr. Christoph Clausen gave a popular science talk 'Quantum-communication in 15 minutes' at the 'Lange Nacht der Museen' in Vienna.
Martin Blaha and Sam Rind have joined our group as Masters students. Welcome to the group!
Dr. Christoph Clausen gave a talk at the Single Photon Workshop 2015 in Geneva that is also available online now.
