Title: Collective dynamics in interacting systems of quantum emitters

Speaker: Claudiu Genes, Institute for Theoretical Physics (University of Innsbruck) and Max Plank Institute for the Science of Light (Erlangen)

Abstract:

Time evolution in ensembles of quantum emitters (atoms, molecules, ions, Rydberg atoms, quantum dots etc) at low vs. high densities is fundamentally different. As particles get closer together, strong environment-mediated interactions start playing a large role both in the coherent (such as dipole-dipole interactions) as well as in the incoherent evolution (super- /subradiance).

We aim at exploiting the inherent collective dynamics towards a few goals such as: i) to perform more precise frequency measurements in the context of Ramsey interferometry in the presence of dephasing and decay [1,2,4] and  ii) to selectively and efficiently prepare robust multipartite entangled states [3] .
