This lecture will introduce the interaction of light with atoms in its simplest form and build up the cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED) platform with optical and microwave examples. Then we will look at the connections and differences between cavity QED and waveguide QED with some experiments implemented in optical nanofibers and photonic structures.The lecture aims to introduce the concepts from a physics and optics point of view to build up intuition for uses of these platforms in quantum optics and quantum information science.
Luis A. Orozco completed his postgraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, obtaining his doctorate in 1987. He held a postdoctoral position at Harvard, working at CERN, Switzerland. He returned to the United States and worked from 1991 to 2003 as a Professor in the Physics Department of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Since 2003, he is Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD, USA, where he is the Co-director of the Physics Frontier Center of the Joint Quantum Institute. Dr. Orozco has been Guggenheim Fellow (1998), Fellow of the American Physical Society (2000), Fellow of the Optical Society of America (2003), Fellow of the Institute of Physics, UK (2005), Distinguished Traveling Lecturer of the American Physical Society (2002-2017) and corresponding member of the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias since (2005). He has graduated 23 PhD students. Together with his students and collaborators he has co-authored more than 100 refereed publications. As a researcher, he is interested in quantum optics, quantum information, fundamental symmetry tests, and high precision spectroscopy.
