Title: "Atomic Clock Based on Quantum Matter"

Friday, November 17, 2017
3:30pm – 4:30pm
Wilder 104
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Abstract:  Emerging technologies based on quantum state engineering of ultracold matter and precise control of laser field have revolutionized a new generation of optical atomic clocks with accuracy at hte 18th digit. This progress has benefited greatly from microscopic understandings of atomic interactions in the quantum regime and the capability of controlling optical phase coherence over many seconds. The unified front of precision metrology and quantum physics will allow us to explore complex quantum systems, test teh fundamental laws of nature, search for new physics, and find unexpected applications.
