Antrittsvorlesung Prof. Arno Rauschenbeutel

02 May 2016 by Sebastian in StudiumNeu

Die Fakultät für Physik lädt ein zur Antrittsvorlesung von Herrn Prof. Arno Rauschenbeutel, die am 12. Mai 2016 um 17:00 s.t. Uhr findet im Freihaus Hörsaal 6 stattfindet.

„Glass Fiber Quantum Optics”

Glass fibers play an important role for guiding and controlling light in many areas of everyday life: Owing to their enormous capacity for data transmission, they have become the backbone of the modern information society. Moreover, they have numerous applications in medicine and industry. However, despite the widespread and successful use of glass fiber technology, the design and optimization of novel types of glass fibers for ever more extreme fields of application remains a highly active field of research. In this context, we employ specially designed glass fibers as quantum laboratories. More precisely, we quantum mechanically interface light and matter (atoms, molecules, etc.) near the surface of ultra-thin glass fibers. The strong spatial confinement of the light enhances the light–matter interaction. Such a strong coupling of light and emitters based on glass fibers opens a number of perspectives, including the ultra-high sensitivity detection of molecules and novel types of fiber-optical components, required for quantum communication, quantum cryptography, and for quantum information processing.

Im Anschluss wird zu einem kleinen Buffet eingeladen.

Um besser planen zu können, wird um kurze Rückmeldung unter <> gebeten.
