Physics and applications of cooperative atomic ensembles
The physics of large cooperative atoms is a tricky theoretical problem and I will introduce some ways to approach this. I will then mostly concentrate on regular arrays that tend to be highly sensitive to and controllable by light fields. Applications of these systems include beam steering, quantum information processing, metrology, and nonlinear single-photon techniques. I will introduce the basic physics aspect of such a system, explain some of the implementations with atoms and solid materials before introducing some applications.
