Abstract:

Light storage and quantum memory are the basis for quantum cryptography and long distance quantum communication. Four-wave mixing is a useful nonlinear optical tool to generate single photonssqueezed light and entangled photons. High optical depth is an important parameter to improve the efficiency of the light storage and four-wave mixing. In this talk, I will present our recent results on cold atoms in a one-dimensional optical trap with high optical depth. We will apply this high optical depth system for realizing light storage and four-wave mixing in the future.
