WINTER SCHOOL: COLLECTIVE EFFECTS, STRUCTURED LIGHT AND QUANTUM MATTER

Date: 
2019-03-04 - 2019-03-08
Place: 
Herrsching am Ammersee, near Munich, Germany

This event is organized by the European Training Network ColOpt. It is a residential school for young researchers (predoctoral, to early post doctoral) working in the areas of cold atoms, out-of-equilibrium quantum physics and quantum technologies. The Winter school venue is in Herrsching am Ammersee near Munich in the Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft. The programme includes research presentations and interactive sessions of esteemed speakers and a young scientist workshop with talks from rising stars.

Engineering a Scalable Quantum Information Processor

Quantum computers, once available for widespread use, will revolutionize the ways we generate and use new knowledge – of fundamental scientific nature and for a wide range of applications. The quest for a scalable quantum computer is as of yet largely driven by experts in physics and in computer science. The challenges posed by this task, however, will necessarily require in addition dedicated and target-driven efforts in engineering.

Aim and Purpose

About a century ago, the theory of quantum mechanics was born. By virtue of its extraordinary explanatory power this theory has not only dramatically changed to the way we see the world, but also led to a first quantum revolution that has brought us groundbreaking new technologies such as the transistor, solid-state lighting, lasers, and GPS.

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.

Trapping of Rydberg atoms in tight magnetic microtraps

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.
