MPQ Colloquium: Coupling spin and orbital dynamics with quantum light

Apr 24

When:     Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 2:30pm
Location: MPQ Garching, New Lecture Hall, Room B 0.32

Prof. Dr. Dan Stamper-Kurn, Department of Physics, University of California/ MPQ Distinguished Fellow will give a talk about "Coupling spin and orbital dynamics with quantum light".


A trapped atomic gas within an optical resonator serves as both a mechanical oscillator and a spin oscillator, represented by the collective degrees of freedom of the gas.
I will describe experiments that characterize the coupling between these collective quantum oscillators.
Such spin-orbit coupling is obtained by parametrically coupling both oscillators to a single-mode driven optical resonator.
