Light & Matter Seminar: Professor Ifan Hughes - Quantum Optics in alkali-metal thermal vapours - 14 December 2022
Please note that this event has passed.
Join Professor Ifan Hughes from Durham University for a Light & Matter Seminar entitled 'Quantum Optics in alkali-metal thermal vapours'
The study of light propagation through thermal atomic vapours subject to external magnetic fields is a flourishing area of research. At Durham we have spent 15 years studying the spectroscopy of alkali-metal vapours. Our electric susceptibility code ElecSus (Zentile et al. Computer Physics Communications 189 162-174 (2015)) is used extensively to model the atom-light interactions. The applications range from devices (compact optical isolators, narrow-line filters) to fundamental physics (quantum optics, single-photon sources). In the talk I will describe experimental and theoretical work to model the electric susceptibility of a vapour of alkali-metal atoms in a magnetic field.
