Guest Researcher at ANU

I will be at the Australia National University in the Ping Koy Lam’s group from November 2012 to February 2013 to develop the ongoing collaboration between the NIST and the ANU groups.

The ANU group has been pioneering the Gradient Echo Memory (GEM) technique.I will work with Ben Sparkes and Julien Bernu who have builded a Rubidium MOT with an optical density on resonance of 1000.The goal is to implement the GEM in a cold atomic sample. The best results obtained so far are an efficiency of 80% and a storage time of 200 microseconds.

ANU contact page and the Group website.
