Laser-cooled Atomic Ensembles in Hollow Optical Fibers
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores hollow-core fibres as a platform for quantum optics experiments with laser-cooled atomic ensembles. The non-diffracting, tightly-confined guided modes of these fibers grant us a ~µm-wide one-dimensional space to study atom-light interactions. In order to describe on-going experiments, simulations are carried out to understand atomic motion into the hollow fibers. Following which, a preliminary case study of a quantum optics experiment to convert wavelengths of single photons with Cs atomic ensembles inside the hollow fiber is presented. Lastly, basic optical properties of photonic crystal membranes are briefly explored. These can form novel cavities when appended to hollow fibers.
