Atomic Physics Seminar, Vito Giovanni Lucivero, ICFO, "Quantum metrology with high density atomic vapors and squeezed states of light"
Fri, May 13, 2016, 12:00 pm1:30 pm
Nowadays there is a considerable progress in optical magnetometry and spin-noise spectroscopy, which use magnetically-sensitive atomic ensembles and optical read-out, approaching fundamental limits. A major outstanding question is whether squeezed light can improve the sensitivity of such atomic sensors under optimal conditions, typically in a…
Atomic Physics Seminar, Ashok Ajoy, MIT, “Quantum assisted metrology with Nitrogen Vacancy centers in diamond”
Thu, Jan 7, 2016, 2:00 pm3:30 pm
In the past few years, the development of novel quantum sensors based on the Nitrogen Vacancy (NV) center in diamond has shown tremendous promise for high sensitivity metrology at small length scales. In this talk, I will outline our efforts to use these sensors for high resolution nanoscale Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) [1-3], specifically…
