An adjustable-length cavity and Bose–Einstein condensate apparatus for multimode cavity QED

We present a novel cavity QED system in which a Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is trapped within a high-finesse optical cavity whose length may be adjusted to access both single-mode and multimode

Limits of atomic entanglement by cavity feedback: From weak to strong coupling

We theoretically investigate the entangled states of an atomic ensemble that can be obtained via cavity feedback, varying the atom-light coupling from weak to strong, and including a systematic

Engineering Matter Interactions Using Squeezed Vacuum

Virtually all interactions that are relevant for atomic and condensed matter physics are mediated by the quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field vacuum. Consequently, controlling the latter

Universal pair polaritons in a strongly interacting Fermi gas.

Cavity QED experiments using molecular transitions in a strongly interacting Fermi gas are reported, directly coupling cavity photons to pairs of atoms, demonstrating a direct mapping between pair correlations in the ground state and the optical spectrum.

This thesis reports on an experiment entering a new regime for strongly correlated manybody physics with ultracold atoms. Up to now, these experiments have mostly been limited to on-site

Cooling and Cooperative Coupling of Single Atoms in an Optical Cavity

In this work the motional state of single cesium atoms strongly coupled to an optical high-finesse cavity is controlled and manipulated by a novel Raman cooling scheme. Furthermore, cavity-modified

Optical cavities are one of the best ways to increase atom-light coupling and will be a key ingredient for future quantum technologies that rely on light–matter interfaces. We demonstrate that

Here, the three-level atoms are coupled with two optical modes of a Fabry-Perot cavity, where a new theoretical model is developed to describe the effective three-wave mixing process between spin-wave and optical modes.

Strongly correlated Fermions strongly coupled to light

The authors show strong coupling between degenerate interacting Fermi gas of 6 Li atoms and photons, offering complete and simultaneous control of atom-atom and atom-photon interactions in the quantum degenerate regime, opening a wide range of perspectives for quantum simulation.

Controlling quantum dynamical processes is the key to practical applications of quantum physics, for example in quantum information science. The manipulation of light–matter interactions at the

Collective dynamical cooling of neutral particles in a high-Q optical cavity

We show that an ensemble of two-level atoms commonly coupled to a single, driven, damped high-$Q$ cavity mode could be cooled and trapped via the correlated dynamics of cavity field and the atomic

Strong atom–field coupling for Bose–Einstein condensates in an optical cavity on a chip

An experiment combining a fibre-based cavity with atom-chip technology enables single-atom cavity quantum electrodynamics experiments with a simplified set-up and realizes the situation of many atoms in a cavity, each of which is identically and strongly coupled to the cavity mode.

Semiclassical theory of cavity-assisted atom cooling

We present a systematic semiclassical model for the simulation of the dynamics of a single two-level atom strongly coupled to a driven high-finesse optical cavity. From the Fokker-Planck equation of

A quadratic dependence of the cavity mode intensity on the atom number is found, which demonstrates the cooperative effect.

Experimental realization of a one-atom laser in the regime of strong coupling

Observations of the second-order intensity correlation function demonstrate that the experimental realization of a one-atom laser operated in the regime of strong coupling generates manifestly quantum (nonclassical) light, typified by photon anti-bunching and sub-poissonian photon statistics.

Cold atoms, driven by a laser and simultaneously coupled to the quantum field of an optical resonator, may self-organize in periodic structures. These structures are supported by the optical lattice,
