The Roentgen-term and related hidden gems in atom-light interaction

Matthias Sonnleitner

University of Innsbruck

Matthias Sonnleitner did his PhD in Innsbruck working with Helmut Ritsch and Monika Ritsch-Marte on optical forces pulling atoms towards hot objects. He then received a Schrodinger Fellowship and moved to Glasgow where he worked with Steve Barnett. A year ago he came back to Innsbruck and continues to work on subtle features in atom-light interaction.


In these exciting times where lasers control atoms with ever increasing precision it becomes necessary to remember small effects and interactions which could previously be safely neglected but may soon become measurable.One of... [ view full abstract ]
