Darrick Chang, ICFO Barcelona Traditional quantum interfaces between atomic ensembles and light have relied upon disordered three-dimensional atomic gases. Recently, however, there have been significant efforts toward exploring whether ordered arrays of atoms can give rise to qualitatively different quantum optical phenomena and functionality, specifically due to strong interference in light emission arising from spatial ordering. more

The nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond is a promising nanoscale quantum sensor for temperature, strain, electric and magnetic fields. Its applicability as a tool to investigate novel materials of interest has sparked widespread attention. more

Recent developments in atomic, molecular and optical systems have enabled unprecedented access to novel out-of-equilibrium phenomena---even in strongly interacting many-body systems. Such techniques have led to an explosion of excitement in this field, with particular attention being given to periodically driven systems. more

The mid-infrared region (MIR) is of paramount importance forspectroscopic analysis in diverse fields ranging from biomedicalscience, environmental studies to material characterization. more

This seminar will describe the novel concept of quantum metasurfaces which constitutesa new platform for manipulating both classical and quantum properties oflight. more

Ultracold polar molecules are promising candidates for simulating many-body physics with long-range interactions. However, their complexity presents a challenge for reaching degeneracy. more

Ultracold strontium atoms offer an excellent platform for quantumsimulations. As an alkali earth atom it has a rich level structureincluding intercombination lines between the singlet and tripletstates. The most interesting one of these is the extremely narrowclock tr more
