Location:   Main Aula, University of Neuchâtel
Date: Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Time: 08:30 - 10:40
Chair: Gaetano Mileti, University of Neuchâtel



Professor Serge Haroche

ENS and Collège de France, Paris, France
An atomic clock tames light

Nobel Prize for Physics 2012

A Ramsey interferometer of the kind used in standard atomic clocks can be turned into a versatile tool to count photons non destructively and to manipulate non classical states of light. Applications to quantum metrology and quantum information science will be considered.

Chip-scale atomic devices: from atomic clocks to brain imaging and beyond

In recent years, the combination of precision atomic spectroscopy, micromachining technology and advanced diode lasers have enabled a new generation of atomic clocks and precision atomic sensors characterized by small size and low power dissipation. We discuss work at NIST over the last decade to develop such instruments and to use them in applications ranging from nuclear magnetic resonance to magnetic measurements of the human brain.
