Dark state optical lattice with sub-wavelength spatial structure

February 20, 2018
Sarthak Subhankar, Tsz-Chun Tsui, James V. Porto, Steve Rolston, Przemek BIenias, Alexey V. Gorshkov, Mateusz Lacki, Michael Baranov, Peter Zoller
We report on the experimental realization of a conservative optical lattice for cold atoms with sub-wavelength spatial structure. The potential is based on the nonlinear optical response of three- level atoms in laser-dressed dark states, which is not

Efimov States of Strongly Interacting Photons

December 4, 2017
Jacob M. Taylor, Alexey V. Gorshkov, Michael Gullans, D Ruzik, Seth Rittenhouse, J.P. D'Incao, Paul Julienne, S Diehl
We introduce a new system to study Efimov physics based on interacting photons in cold gases of Rydberg atoms. This system has a large anisotropy between the longitudinal mass of the photons, arising from dispersion, and the transverse mass of the photons

Spontaneous avalanche dephasing in large Rydberg ensembles

November 13, 2017
Thomas L. Boulier, Eric Magnan, Carlos Bracamontes, James Maslek, Elizabeth Goldschmidt, Jeremey Young, Alexey V. Gorshkov, Steven Rolston, James V. Porto
Strong dipole-exchange interactions due to spontaneously produced contaminant states can trigger rapid dephasing in many-body Rydberg ensembles [E. Goldschmidt et al., PRL 116, 113001 (2016)]. Such broadening has serious implications for many proposals to
