"Simulating condensed matter systems with interacting photons"

Time:

Location: 
Marcus Nanotech Conf.

Series: Quantum Information Colloquia Series

Affiliation: 
Princeton University

Photons do not interact strongly in nature, and have thus been relegated to a role as a tool rather than an object of study in condensed matter physics.
However, in cavity quantum electrodynamics, the strong interaction of light with a single atom can lead to strong atom-mediated photon-photon
interactions, even when the light and atomic transitions are not resonant. Recent theoretical proposals have predicted phase transitions in arrays of
these cavities, demonstrating that complex matter-like phenomena can emerge from a sea of interacting photons.

"Measuring Everything You've Always Wanted to Know About a Laser Pulse"

Time: 
Wed, 09/07/2011 - 3:00pm
Location: 
Marcus Nanotech Conf.

Series: Physics Colloquium

Affiliation: 
Georgia Tech School of Physics

Measuring an event in time seems to require a shorter one. As a result, the development of a technique for measuring ultrashort laser pulses—the shortest events ever created—has been particularly difficult. We have, however, developed simple methods for fully characterizing these events, that is, for measuring a pulse's intensity and phase vs. time. One involves making an optical spectrogram of the pulse by using nonlinear optic.

"Coupled quantized harmonic oscillators" by Kenton Brown

Series: Quantum Information Colloquia Series

In theory, quantum computers can solve certain problems much more efficiently than classical computers. This possibility has motivated experimental efforts to construct devices that manipulate quantum bits (qubits) in a variety of physical systems. One such system is composed of atomic ions confined by electric fields in a rf Paul trap. The motions of such ions can be modeled to a very good approximation as harmonic oscillators, and with suitable laser cooling techniques they can be cooled to the harmonic oscillator ground state.
