Engineering Rashba Spin-Orbit Coupling for a Bose-Einstien Condensate
28 Aug 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Ian B. Spielman
I will describe our engineered Rashba spin-orbit coupling for a cold atomic gas giving non-trivial topology, without the underlying crystalline structure that conventionally yields integer Chern numbers.

Quantum Coherent Transport in Atoms & Electrons
21 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Yong P. Chen
I will discuss some recent experimental examples from my lab studying quantum coherent transport and interferometry in electrons as well as cold atoms. For example, phase coherent electron transport and interference around a cylinder realized in a nanowire of topological insulator...

This chapter explains the principles of interferometry, among its topics are: Superposition of fields, Monochromatic Fields, many type of interferometry, Temporal Coherence, etc.Notes developed by Professor Gabriel Popescu from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
26 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: David D. Nolte
While single-molecule detection through fluorescence has now become common-place, there has been no analogous single-molecule capability using direct detection approaches such as interferometry. This limitation is slowly yielding to high-speed interferoemtric detection that is pushing the...
