Project announcement: A quantum memory based on the selective radiance of atom arrays (Q-MANTA)

Achieving precise control over the propagation speed of quantum information is a fundamental objective in the field of quantum information processing.We are expanding our programme with an experimental research pathway that will demonstrate enabling capabilities to build a new type of quantum memory for light. The approach involves coupling arrays of single atoms to the light guided in two-dimensional nano-photonic crystal waveguides.

The acronym Q-MANTA represents our focus on building a quantum memory based on atomic and nanophotonic arrays. Assistant Professor Jean-Baptiste Béguin from Professor Eugene Polzik’s Danish Center for Quantum Optics (Quantop) leads the project. It will involve a postdoc and PhD position, and budget to upgrade experimental setups.
