When optical components are reduced to the nanoscale, they exhibit interesting properties that can be harnessed to create new devices. For example, imagine a block of material with thin layers of alternating materials. This creates a periodic arrangement of alternating dielectric constants, forming a "photonic crystal" that is analogous to the electronic crystals used in semiconductor devices. Photonic crystals, along with quantum dots and other devices patterned at the nanoscale, may form the basis for sensors and switches used in computers and telecommunications.

Manipulating Strongly Interacting Individual Quanta: Photon Molecules and 51 Atomic Qubits
26 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Vladan Vuletic
I will discuss two applications: By coherently coupling light to Rydberg excitations in a dense atomic medium, we have realized a highly nonlinear optical medium where the interactions between individual photons are so strong that two photons can even form a bound state.
Energy Transport in Bi-Te-Se Topological Insulators
21 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Shouyuan Huang, Vasudevan Iyer, Xianfan Xu
Topological insulators (TIs) are a new phase of material that allows metallic conducting electrons at its surface while the bulk is insulating. Besides, the topological surface electrons’ spin orientation is always locked perpendicular to its moving direction, called...
