Experiments handling Rydberg atoms near surfaces must necessarily deal with the high sensitivity of Rydberg atoms to (stray) electric fields that typically emanate from adsorbates on the surface. We demonstrate a method to modify and reduce the stray electric field by changing the adsorbates distribution. We use one of the Rydberg excitation lasers to locally affect the adsorbed dipole distribution.

We explore the possibility to trap Rydberg atoms in tightly confining magnetic microtraps. The trapping frequencies for Rydberg atoms are expected to be influenced strongly by magnetic-field gradients. We show that there are regimes where Rydberg atoms can be trapped. Moreover, we show that so-called magic trapping conditions can be found for certain states of rubidium, where both Rydberg atoms and ground-state atoms have the same trapping frequencies. Magic trapping is highly beneficial for implementing quantum gate operations that require long operation times.

ZEISS Symposium "Optics in the Quantum World"

Date: 
2018-04-18
Place: 
Oberkochen, Germany

Quantum effects are in use since the 20th century and have led to market shaping innovations like semiconductor electronics and lasers. In the 21st century, quantum technology developments focus on the controlled quantum state of individual or coupled systems. While this quantum technology is still in the research stage, it offers an enormous potential and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster the technology and its commercial potential.

FOMO2018 Summer School of the Conference Frontiers of MatterWave Optics

Date: 
2018-09-10 - 2018-09-14
Registration deadline: 
2018-07-01 (All day)
Place: 
Crete, Greece

Scope of the Summer School

The summer school aims at providing a strong background in matter-wave physics to those starting in the field, be it PhD students or early stage post-docs. The school will consist of a series of in-depth lectures by leading experimentalists and theorists in the field. The summer school is to some extent a preparation to the conference, which follows the week after.

The summer school will take place in the village of Archanes, close to Heraklion on Crete (Greece).  

High Level Steering Committee Final Report published

Summary: 

The final report of the High Level Steering Committee for Quantum Technologies has been published.

On the 18th of September the final report of the High Level Steering Committee on Quantum Technologies has been published. This documents complete the intermidiate report which was published in February. The final report expands the section dedicated on the implementation and include a proposal for the governance structure of the QT flagship.
