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”.|
In a collaboration with the Zoller group from Innsbruck and the Lodahl group from Copenhagen we published the review paper 'Chiral Quantum Optics' in the latest 'Nature' issue. Follow the link for the TU Wien press release (German).
Our work on a quantum optical circulator was published in Science: M. Scheucher et al., 'Quantum optical circulator controlled by a single chirally coupled atom', DOI: 10.1126/science.aaj2118
Martin Blaha and Luke Masters have joined our group as PhD students. Welcome on board!
Dr. Adèle Hilico has been awarded the second prize in the poster competition at the conference FOMO - Frontiers of Matter-Wave Optics. Congratulations!
Dr. Sarah Skoff was awarded with a Lise-Meitner-Fellowship by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). Congratulations!
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!
