Neutral Atoms for Quantum Information Processing

Friday 26th May 2006, 3.30PM, Seminar Room AR103, Graduate Research Centre.

In recent years, remarkable progress has been achieved in the field quantum information processing. Subject of the talk are investigations concerning the experimental realization of quantum information processing, based on neutral, cold Rubidium atoms. The techniques of laser cooling and atom optics are combined with the application of micro-structured devices for the creation of optical dipole potentials. I will present Ramsey- and spinecho measurements on atomic ensembles trapped in single optical dipole traps, as well as in two dimensional arrays of traps.
