Quantum optics with emitters in waveguides


Ignacio Cirac, Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, München

Recent progress in nano-fabrication and atomic physics has allowed to couple atoms (or other emitters) to structured waveguides. In this talk I will report on:(i) a theoretical framework to describe some of those experiments using both a master equation and a path integral approach; (ii) the existence of many-photon bound states in the presence of one emitter; (iii) some techniques to prepare multi-photon states in the waveguide using strong coupling and collective effects.
