We demonstrate highly efficient switching of optical signals between two optical fibers controlled by a single atom. The key element of our experiment is a whispering-gallery-mode bottle microresonator, which is coupled to a single atom and interfaced by two tapered fiber couplers. This system reaches the strong coupling regime of cavity quantum(More)
Light is often described as a fully transverse-polarized wave, i.e., with an electric field vector that is orthogonal to the direction of propagation. However, light confined in dielectric structures such as optical waveguides or whispering-gallery-mode microresonators can have a strong longitudinal polarization component. Here, using single (85)Rb atoms(More)
We used the EyeSys Corneal Topography System to examine several issues relating to corneal topography systems and the interpretation of their results. Interferometry measurements of EyeSys calibration spheres indicated that they deviated from suggested values by 0.05 +/- 0.13 D (mean +/- 1 standard deviation). The EyeSys unit reliably determined the(More)
