Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics

Group leader : Jean-Michel RAIMOND
Laboratoire Kastler Brossel
Our research activity focuses on the manipulation of Rydberg atoms in three different experimental configurations: coupled to microwave photons stored in high-finesse Fabry-Pérot cavities, prepared in a gas of ultracold atoms, or manipulated as individual quantum systems. Our goals include fundamental tests of quantum mechanics, the realisation of quantum simulations, or the demonstration of quantum sensing.

The research themes of the team are:

  • Quantum metrology (electrometry, magnetometry) with non-classical states in Rydberg multiplicities
  • Quantum simulation with circular Rydberg atoms trapped in interaction
    Quantum information and cavity electrodynamic  with slow circular atoms.
