Structural phase transitions of optical patterns in atomic gases with microwave-controlled Rydberg interactions (2020)
Journal Article
Shi, Z., Li, W., & Huang, G. (2020). Structural phase transitions of optical patterns in atomic gases with microwave-controlled Rydberg interactions. Physical Review A, 102(2), https://doi.org/10.1103/physreva.102.023519

Spontaneous symmetry breaking and formation of self-organized structures in nonlinear systems are intriguing and important phenomena in nature. Advancing such research to new nonlinear optical regimes is of much interest for both fundamental physics...

Hafele and Keating on a chip: Sagnac interferometry with a single clock (2020)
Journal Article
Johnson, J., Foxon, B., Atkocius, V., Gentile, F., Jammi, S., Poulios, K., & Fernholz, T. (2020). Hafele and Keating on a chip: Sagnac interferometry with a single clock. Proceedings of SPIE, 11296, https://doi.org/10.1117/12.2552686

We describe our progress in the development of an atom based rotation sensor, which employs state-dependent trapping potentials to transport ultracold atoms along a closed path and perform Sagnac interferometry. Whilst guided atom interferometers are... Read More about Hafele and Keating on a chip: Sagnac interferometry with a single clock.

A Voigt effect based 3D vector magnetometer (2019)
Journal Article
Pyragius, T., Marin Florez, H., & Fernholz, T. (2019). A Voigt effect based 3D vector magnetometer. Physical Review A, 100(2), https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevA.100.023416

We describe a method to dispersively detect all three vector components of an external magnetic field using alkali atoms based on the Voigt effect. Our method relies on measuring the linear birefringence of the radio frequency dressed atomic medium v... Read More about A Voigt effect based 3D vector magnetometer.

Stable single light bullets and vortices and their active control in cold Rydberg gases (2019)
Journal Article
Bai, Z., Li, W., & Huang, G. (2019). Stable single light bullets and vortices and their active control in cold Rydberg gases. Optica, 6(3), 309-317. https://doi.org/10.1364/OPTICA.6.000309

Realizing single light bullets and vortices that are stable in high dimensions is a long-standing goal in the study of nonlinear optical physics. On the other hand, the storage and retrieval of such stable high dimensional optical pulses may offer a...

Interactions between a water molecule and C 60 in the endohedral fullerene H2O@C60 (2019)
Journal Article
Rashed, E., & Dunn, J. L. (2019). Interactions between a water molecule and C 60 in the endohedral fullerene H2O@C60. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 21(6), 3347-3359. https://doi.org/10.1039/C8CP04390F

A water molecule encapsulated inside a C 60 fullerene cage behaves almost like an asymmetric top rotor, as would be expected of an isolated water molecule. However, inelastic neutron scattering (INS) experiments show evidence of interactions between... Read More about Interactions between a water molecule and C 60 in the endohedral fullerene H2O@C60.
