06.-08.03.2013 visit of Monika Schleier-Smith

Monika Schleier-Smith (Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics,Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit├Ąt, Munich) is visiting us and will give a talk on Thursday 07.03.2013 in the Ctrl-Q meeting in room E.04 at 10:30.
She will talk about "Engineering Entanglement from the Top Down: Cavity Spin Squeezing and Beyond"
The collective interaction of many atoms with a single mode of light--as realized in an optical cavity--constitutes a powerful tool for engineering many-body entangled states. I will describe experiments in which such an interaction produced squeezed spin states of an atomic ensemble, permitting the first demonstration of a quantum enhancement in the stability of an atomic clock. I will also touch on future prospects in cavity-based quantum-state control and detection, ranging from interfacing spin and motional degrees of freedom to probing entanglement near a quantum critical point.
