Engineering Light-Matter Interactions in Photonic Crystal Waveguides

Speaker: Alex Burgers, Kimble Group
Location: East Bridge 114

Abstract: Integrating ultracold atoms with nanophotonics enables the exploration of new paradigms in quantum optics and many body physics. Advanced fabrication capabilities for low-loss dielectrics materials  provide powerful tools to engineer band structure and light-matter coupling of photons and atoms.  I will present recent efforts in the Kimble lab to achieve high fractional filling of trap sites within a photonic crystal waveguide using an optical lattice delivery system.
