Atoms and photons interact in free space in one of nature's most fundamental processes. The dipolar interaction strength between the two systems is determined by fundamental constants, with one of its limiting factors being the mode volume of the propagating photons. A waveguide is an engineered medium that confines the electromagnetic field and in proximity to atoms allows light-matter interactions with stronger couplings compared to free space. In superconducting quantum circuits it

The mystery of the lost coherence

Coherence is understood as a fundamental concept in optics and in quantum physics. However, it has the peculiarity of not being a phenomenon in itself and it only manifests through other phenomena. Although this seemed to be well understood long ago, the new physics proposes scenarios which challenge the interpretation of this concept.

Linear programs for entanglement and key distribution in the quantum internet

We consider the distribution of entangled resources for various quantum information protocols and user scenarios via quantum networks. We introduce private and quantum capacities for the entire network and provide upper and lower bounds that, given the single channel capacities or bounds on them, can be efficiently computed using linear programs (LPs).

Quantum metrology with one-dimensional superradiant photonic states

Seminar date and time:

Photonic states with large and fixed photon numbers, such as Fock states, enable quantum-enhanced metrology but remain an experimentally elusive resource. A potentially simple, deterministic and scalable way to generate these states consists of fully exciting N quantum emitters equally coupled to a common photonic reservoir, which leads to a collective decay known as Dicke superradiance.
