Cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) investigates the interaction between light confined in a resonator and particles, such as atoms. In recent years, CQED experiments have reached the optical domain resulting in many interesting applications in the realm of quantum information processing. For many of these application it is necessary to overcome limitations imposed by photon loss. In this context whispering-gallery mode (WGM) resonators have obtained significant interest. Besides their small… 

Chiral quantum optics with giant atoms

In quantum optics, it is common to assume that atoms are pointlike objects compared to the wavelength of the electromagnetic field they interact with. However, this dipole approximation is not always

Microdisk cavities with a Brewster notch

The authors introduce a notched optical microdisk cavity by combining total internal reflection and transmission at Brewster's angle. The corresponding high-quality modes are excitable with an

Special Issue on the 60th anniversary of the first laser—Series I: Microcavity Photonics—from fundamentals to applications

This special issue covers a series of cutting-edge works on advanced physics and applications of optical microcavities and microlasers, ranging from the study of chaotic resonances, microcombs and soliton physics, lasers with tailored orbital angular momentum, coherent light-matter coupling and quantum condensation, optical nonreciprocity, to multiplexed biochemical sensing.
