21.-24.4.2013 Tracy Northup (Innsbruck) visits us

Tracy Northup (Innsbruck) will give a talk on Wednesday 24.04 at 09:00 about "An ion-cavity quantum interface".

Abstract:
In order to link remote ion-trap systems in a quantum network, we
require a coherent interface between ions and photons. In our
experimental work, an optical cavity provides this interface. After
describing how we implement the ion-cavity interaction, I will present
the mapping of a quantum state from an ion to a photon. A second
result, entanglement between an ion and a cavity photon, then provides
the groundwork for a demonstration of heralded ion-ion entanglement.
Finally, I discuss routes towards the cavity-based simulation of quantum
field theories.
