The Global Network of Optical Magnetometers for Exotic Physics (GNOME) uses precision atomic magnetometers to look new physics. The concept is to have a global network of magnetometers looking for correlated magnetic field fluctuations that may be caused by strange, and unknown physics.
This project aims to be the first in the world to use the radiation pressure forces of laser beams to coherently levitate a macroscopic mirror. Applications of this scheme include precision metrology and test of new physics theories.
Student will build and characterise a new source of quantum squeezed light genearted from an optical parametric oscillator
Student will develop a source of laser light at 775nm that will be utilised for pumping of squeezing cavities
Ideal strings have wave speeds that are identical for all frequencies. In real life, strings have some stiffness that makes higher frequency waves are faster. This means building and tuning some stringed instruments, like pianos, is very tricky. This project aims to accurately measure wave speeds on piano strings.
An optical quantum memory will capture a pulse of light, store it and then controllably release it. This has to be done without ever knowing what you have stored, because a measurement will collapse the quantum state. We are exploring a "photon echo" process to achieve this goal.
