Two-orbital SU(N) magnetism with ultracold alkaline-earth atoms
Fermionic alkaline-earth atoms have unique properties that make them attractive candidates for the realization of atomic clocks and degenerate quantum gases. At the same time, they are attractingExpand
Quantum nonlinear optics with single photons enabled by strongly interacting atoms
The realization of strong nonlinear interactions between individual light quanta (photons) is a long-standing goal in optical science and engineering, being of both fundamental and technologicalExpand
Non-local propagation of correlations in quantum systems with long-range interactions
The maximum speed with which information can propagate in a quantum many-body system directly affects how quickly disparate parts of the system can become correlated and how difficult the system willExpand
Attractive photons in a quantum nonlinear medium
The fundamental properties of light derive from its constituent particles—massless quanta (photons) that do not interact with one another. However, it has long been known that the realization ofExpand
Photon storage in Λ -type optically dense atomic media. II. Free-space model
In a recent paper [Gorshkov et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 123601 (2007)], we presented a universal physical picture for describing a wide range of techniques for storage and retrieval of photon waveExpand
Kitaev chains with long-range pairing.
We propose and analyze a generalization of the Kitaev chain for fermions with long-range p-wave pairing, which decays with distance as a power law with exponent α. Using the integrability of theExpand
Quantum many-body models with cold atoms coupled to photonic crystals
Using cold atoms to simulate strongly interacting quantum systems is an exciting frontier of physics. However, because atoms are nominally neutral point particles, this limits the types ofExpand
Photon-photon interactions via Rydberg blockade.
We develop the theory of light propagation under the conditions of electromagnetically induced transparency in systems involving strongly interacting Rydberg states. Taking into account the quantumExpand
Photon storage in Λ -type optically dense atomic media. III. Effects of inhomogeneous broadening
In a recent paper [Gorshkov et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 123601 (2007)] and in the two preceding papers [Gorshkov et al., this issue, Phys. Rev. A 76, 033804 (2006); 76, 033805 (2006)], we used aExpand
Many-body treatment of the collisional frequency shift in fermionic atoms.
Recent experiments have measured collisional frequency shifts in polarized fermionic alkaline-earth atoms using 1S0-3P0 Rabi spectroscopy. Here, we provide a first-principles nonequilibriumExpand
