A New Spin on Quantum Atom-Light Interactions

Project description

New protocols and exotic phenomena in quantum atom-light interfaces

Efficient quantum interfaces between atoms and photons are fundamental for a wide range of quantum applications including information processing, nonlinear optics and sensing. Exploiting multiple scattering and wave interference between emitted atoms in light-matter interactions can help reveal quantum phenomena never witnessed before. The EU-funded NEWSPIN project aims to establish protocols with exponentially better error bounds than those currently known. The project will also develop a quantum many-body theory of multiple scattering between photons and atoms, which takes advantage of state-of-the-art tools from condensed matter physics. NEWSPIN could greatly enrich our understanding of exotic new quantum phenomena as well as answer fundamental questions in optics, such as how large a material’s refractive index can be.
