Quantum Interference Between Independent Reservoirs in Open Quantum Systems

When a quantum system interacts with multiple reservoirs, the environmental effects are usually treated in an additive manner. We showed that that assumption breaks down for non-Markovian environments that have finite memory times. Specifically, we demonstrated that quantum interferences between independent environments could qualitatively modify the dynamics of the physical system. We illustrated that effect...

Buffer-gas loaded magneto-optical traps for Yb, Tm, Er, and Ho

Novel physics in areas like quantum information, cold controlled chemistry and precision measurements is predicted to be accessible with molecules at temperatures in the mK regime. These approaches require molecular beam sources which are unavailable at present. In particular, providing cold, slow and bright beams of a general set of molecules, ideally independent of their...

Quantum Nanophotonic Phase Switch with a Single Atom

In analogy to transistors in classical electronic circuits, a quantum optical switch is an important element of quantum circuits and quantum networks. Operated at the fundamental limit where a single quantum of light or matter controls another field or material system, it may enable fascinating applications such as long-distance quantum communication, distributed quantum information processing and...
