About

The Schine lab borrows ideas and techniques from atomic physics, quantum optics, quantum information science, and condensed matter physics to address a range of questions from across quantum science. Some are applications driven: How can strong light-matter coupling provide new tools for manipulation of quantum systems? Other questions are more fundamental: What role does dissipation play for emergent behaviors of quantum systems beyond the correspondence principle? Our vehicle for these investigations will be a carefully engineered optical cavity coupled to a tweezer-trapped array of cold atoms. Cavity-enhanced coupling between light and individually controlled atoms will be foundational for new control and measurement protocols for quantum information processing as well as for engineered dissipation for quantum many-body systems -- either of neutral atoms or strongly interacting photons.
