    • 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 ...
    • Nanoplasmonic Lattices for Ultracold Atoms 

      Gullans, M.; Tiecke, Tobias; Chang, D. E.; Feist, J.; Thompson, J. D.; Cirac, J. I.; Zoller, P.; Lukin, Mikhail D. (American Physical Society (APS), 2012)
      We propose to use subwavelength confinement of light associated with the near field of plasmonic systems to create nanoscale optical lattices for ultracold atoms. Our approach combines the unique coherence properties of ...
