Metastable decoherence-free subspaces and electromagnetically induced transparency in interacting many-body systems (2017)
Journal Article
Macieszczak, K., Zhou, Y., Hofferberth, S., Garrahan, J. P., Li, W., & Lesanovsky, I. (2017). Metastable decoherence-free subspaces and electromagnetically induced transparency in interacting many-body systems. Physical Review A, 96(4), doi:10.1103/PhysRevA.96.043860. ISSN 2469-9926

We investigate the dynamics of a generic interacting many-body system under conditions of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). This problem is of current relevance due to its connection to non-linear optical media realized by Rydberg atoms... Read More

Prospects of charged-oscillator quantum-state generation with Rydberg atoms (2016)
Journal Article
Stevenson, R., Minář, J., Hofferberth, S., & Lesanovsky, I. (2016). Prospects of charged-oscillator quantum-state generation with Rydberg atoms. Physical Review A, 94, doi:10.1103/PhysRevA.94.043813. ISSN 2469-9926

We explore the possibility of engineering quantum states of a charged mechanical oscillator by coupling it to a stream of atoms in superpositions of high-lying Rydberg states. Our scheme relies on the driving of a two-phonon resonance within the osci... Read More

Electromagnetically induced transparency in an entangled medium (2014)
Journal Article
Li, W., Viscor, D., Hofferberth, S., & Lesanovsky, I. (2014). Electromagnetically induced transparency in an entangled medium. Physical Review Letters, 112(24), doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.112.243601. ISSN 0031-9007

We theoretically investigate light propagation and electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) in a quasi one-dimensional gas in which atoms interact strongly via exchange interactions. We focus on the case in which the gas is initially prepared i... Read More
