RLE Research Groups

Experimental Atomic Physics Group

The Vuletić group strives to manipulate atoms and photons in systems where the particles’ quantum nature dominates. Our work touches on quantum measurement, quantum control, quantum feedback, mesoscopic systems and entanglement.

Investigations:

Nonlinearities at the single photon level
Spatially Separating Photons
Switching with Single Photons
Measurements beyond the standard quantum limit
Better Atomic Clocks – Using Trapped Atoms Near a Microfabricated Chip to Realize an Atomic Clock Operating Below the Atomic Projection-Noise Limit

The group is led by Professor Vladan Vuletić
