    • Coherence and Raman Sideband Cooling of a Single Atom in an Optical Tweezer 

      Thompson, Jeffrey Douglas; Tiecke, Tobias; Zibrov, Alexander S; Vuletić, V.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society, 2013)
      We investigate quantum control of a single atom in a tightly focused optical tweezer trap. We show that inevitable spatially varying polarization gives rise to significant internal-state decoherence but that this effect ...
    • Coupling a Single Trapped Atom to a Nanoscale Optical Cavity 

      Thompson, Jeffrey Douglas; Tiecke, Tobias; de Leon, Nathalie Pulmones; Feist, J.; Akimov, Alexey; Gullans, Michael John; Zibrov, Alexander S; Vuletic, V.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2013)
      Hybrid quantum devices, in which dissimilar quantum systems are combined in order to attain qualities not available with either system alone, may enable far-reaching control in quantum measurement, sensing, and information ...
    • Nanophotonic quantum phase switch with a single atom 

      Tiecke, Tobias; Thompson, Jeffrey Douglas; de Leon, Nathalie Pulmones; Liu, L; Vuletić, V.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
      By analogy to transistors in classical electronic circuits, quantum optical switches are important elements of quantum circuits and quantum networks1, 2, 3. Operated at the fundamental limit where a single quantum of light ...
    • A quantum interface between single atoms and nanophotonic structures 

      Thompson, Jeffrey Douglas (2014-10-21)
      Strong interactions between light and atoms at the single-quantum level are an important ingredient for quantum technologies, as well as for studies of fundamental effects in quantum optics. This thesis describes the ...
