Physics - IQUIST Seminar

Abstract: I will give an overview of recent, ongoing, and future work using coherent atomic and atom-like optical emitters to build quantum light-matter interfaces. Optical fields play an important role in virtually all schemes for interconnected quantum information systems since only optical photons are well-suited for carrying quantum information at room temperature. I will discuss different physical platforms that can form the basis for quantum light-matter interfaces, different modalities of light-matter entanglement for various applications in quantum information science, and the tradeoffs related to these different systems. I will include recent experimental results efficiently generating high-fidelity single photons, investigating the role of inhomogeneity in ensemble-based quantum memory, and developing a new integrated photonic platform with highly coherent emitters. I will also give a brief overview of my future research plans here at Illinois.
