Ten Minute Talk:"'Long quantum memory based on SiV centers in diamond'" by Denis Sukachev
Quantum light-matter interfaces that reversibly map photonic quantum states onto atomic states, are essential components in the quantum engineering toolbox with applications in quantum communication, computing, and quantum-enabled sensing. I present a new platform for on-chip quantum light-matter interfaces based on nanophotonic resonators coupled to rare-earth-ions in crystals. The rare-earth ions exhibit long coherence times...

Ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices provide a unique platform for the study of tailored many-body systems. The realization of quantum gas microscopes marked a new era in this field. They enabled the precision detection of single atoms on individual lattice sites and with this provide direct experimental access to non-local correlation functions. Here we...

Ten Minute Talk:"Unknown at this Time" by Ephraim Shahmoon
Axions, axion-like particles (ALPs), dilatons, and other ultralight (masses from 10^{-4} down to 10^{-22} eV) particles have been discussed as possible candidates for dark matter. An interesting feature of these ideas is that they lead to predictions of potentially observable transient and oscillating effects. I will describe how we are looking for these as well...

Ten Minute Talk:"Error-Corrected Quantum Sensing" by David Layden
Cold atoms with laser-induced spin-orbit (SO) interactions provide intriguing new platforms to explore novel quantum physics beyond natural conditions of solids. Recent experiments demonstrated one-dimensional (1D) SO couplings for bosons and fermions. However, the realization of 2D SO interaction for quantum degenerate atom gases is much more interesting and challenging. Here we report the realization...
