In This Workshop

  1. Opening Remarks

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Vladimir M. Shalaev

  2. VIRTUAL PHOTONS: From Lamb’s shift to Dicke’s superradiance

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Marlan O. Scully, Dawei Wang

    The effects of virtual photons are very real. The Lamb shift and Unruh radiation are examples. It may even be possible to make real advances from virtual processes in solar cells. The three main topics to be covered are: The Lamb Shift Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow; Unruh Radiation is a...

  3. Beyond the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle in the Negative Mass Reference Frame

    07 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eugene Polzik

    Measurements of one quadrature of an oscillator with precision beyond its vacuum state uncertainty have occupied a central place in quantum physics for decades. A squeezed state of one of the quadratures is a prominent example of a state which provides such precision. One of the first proposals...

  4. Quantum Memory for Enhanced Sensing and Photon Storage and Correlation

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jörg Wrachtrup

    The talk will describe the use of nuclear spin quantum memories in diamond defect centers for sensing and quantum repeater applications.

  5. Quantum Error Correction for Metrology

    05 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Fedor Jelezko

    I will discuss recent developments transforming quantum control tools into quantum technologies based on single nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. I will present ultrasensitive MRI at nanoscale and recently developed magnetometry protocols that use quantum error correction as a resource....

  6. Photons as 'Glue' for Dissimilar Quantum Systems

    12 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Oliver Benson

    Here we report on different photon sources, which could be part of a quantum hybrid architecture or which could provide the‘glue’for dissimilar quantum systems.The talk concerns on the one hand the integration of stable emitters as reliable sources and on the other hand the...

  7. Light Matter Interfaces for NV Center in Diamond

    11 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alexey V Akimov

    The NV center in diamond is attracting a lot of attention within the quantum information processing community. As a spin system in a clean and well-controlled environment of the diamond lattice, it exhibits outstanding performance as a quantum memory, even at room temperature....

  8. Coupling of Quantum Emitters to Localized and Propagating Plasmons

    13 Oct 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi

    In this talk, I review our latest theoretical and experimental results concerning QE coupling to localized and propagating SP modes. In particular, influence of gap SP resonators on the decay rate of closely located QEs and different decay contributions are discussed as well as the dynamics of...
