Single-atom detection by micro-cavities

Single-atom detection by micro-cavities

Several groups have successfully trapped atoms in the magnetic field created by current-carrying wires on top of a glass or silicon substrate (atom chips) [1]. Such traps can in principle be used for scalable quantum information processing. So far, however, optical access to the trapped atoms was mainly limited to free space observation and laser manipulation. We are now investigating possibilities to integrate micro-optics on top of an atom chip by standard fiber technology. In particular we are interested in single-atom detection with minimal spontaneous scattering.

Abstract

The last few years have seen tremendous progress in the miniaturization of traps for neutral atoms. Several groups have successfully trapped atoms in the magnetic field created by current-carrying wires on top of a glass or silicon substrate (atom chips) [1]. Such traps can in principle be used for scalable quantum information processing. So far, however, optical access to the trapped atoms was mainly limited to free space observation and laser manipulation. We are now investigating possibilities to integrate micro-optics on top of an atom chip by standard fiber technology. In particular we are interested in single-atom detection with minimal spontaneous scattering.
