Circuit QED: Atomic Physics and Quantum Optics with Superconducting Electrical Circuits

— filed under: ,
Date and time Jan 18, 2007

Location Maclennan Physics (MP) 102
Host Arun Paramekanti

 Recent experimental breakthroughs have led to the construction of artificial superconducting ‘atoms’: nanoscale objects containing nearly one trillion aluminum atoms coherently acting in concert.  When placed inside a resonant cavity, these ‘atoms’ can strongly interact with microwaves and can be used to detect the particle nature of individual microwave quanta.   This talk will give an elementary introduction to recent remarkable experiments in the Schoelkopf and Devoret labs at Yale.  In addition to being a new test bed for quantum mechanics and quantum optics, this system has many promising features for quantum computation.
