Quantum information and quantum optics with single trapped atoms, ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences

Short name: 

Single Atoms

Research type: 

We study experimentally the quantum interaction of trapped, laser-cooled ions and atoms with laser light, aiming at its application for processing and transmitting quantum information. Particular emphasis is on the interaction between single trapped ions over long distances through optical fields, and on techniques for storing single neutral atoms.
