Quantum Optics Lab | WSU

We are a new experimental quantum optics group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Washington State University. Our group currently utilizes trapped neutral atomic arrays and ensembles and their highly excited Rydberg states to explore atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics. We are generally interested in quantum optics, nonlinear optics, atomic physics, cavity quantum electrodynamics, Rydberg-mediated interactions, many-body physics, quantum information processing, quantum simulation, quantum sensing, quantum photonics, and so on. We aim to develop new techniques, as well as study fundamental physical phenomena and their unique applications in the fields of quantum optics, atomic physics, and quantum information science.
