Collective strong coupling of cold atoms to an all-fiber ring cavity

DWC Investigator Dr Maarten Hoogerland was a contributing author of the following article recently published in Optica.

Abstract:

Large-scale quantum networks could allow a wide variety of applications in quantum computing and simulation. We have demonstrated the operation of a single node for use in such a network. A fiber ring cavity contains a nanofiber section, which mediates atom–light interactions through the evanescent field. We observe collective enhancement of the coupling rate between the ensemble of atoms and the light in the fiber.

This work, published in “Optica”, represents an important step toward implementing such a large-scale all-fiber quantum network.
