Quantum metrology for fundamental physics

Thursday October 3, 2019
3:30 pm

 Presenter:  Konrad Lehnert, JILA
 Series:  CQuIC Seminars
 Abstract:  Can quantum metrology and emerging quantum technologies, in some way, improve or enhance searches for fundamental physics? Indeed, the use of optical squeezing in gravitational wave observatories is a beautiful example that they can. In addition to this one prominent example, the search for dark matter may offer several other near-term experiments that can, and perhaps must, use enhanced quantum sensing methods. I’ll describe several methods for creating and efficiently measuring non-classical states in laboratory high-Q oscillators, both mechanical and electrical. In particular detail, I’ll discuss the case of searching for a hypothetical dark matter particle known as the axion and accelerating the search using quantum squeezing approaches.
