Abstract

The use of atom chips for the manipulation cooling and investigation ofneutral atoms isnow well developed with the current carrying wires used for transport and production of magnetic traps being integral parts of the chip. Such devices offer the possibility of scalable quantum information processing. A further step towards compact efficient devices would be the integration of the required optical elements both for detection and manipulation of the atoms. To this end we are working to mount standard fibre optical components onto the chip with the goal of single atom detection. At present, two man directions are being pursued: Fluorescence detection and fibre Fabry Perot gap cavities Theoretical analysis has shown that both devices will have the ability to detect single atoms with the micro-cavities offering the possibility of non-destructive detection.
