Welcome to the WWW pages of the Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics
group of Luis A. Orozco from the Joint Quantum Institute at the Department of Physics of UMD.
- Quantum Optics studies the coherence and statistical properties of light and how they change
as it interacts with atoms. Our experimental work has used two platforms: Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) and Optical Nanofibers. We have explored Quantum Feedback, Quantum Information, Quantum Optics, and Quantum Thermodynamics.
Spectroscopy probes the structure of the heaviest alkali metal atom using
laser light and aims to understand better the weak interaction. We are members of the FrPNC collaboration (Prof. Gerald Gwinner, U. Manitoba, Spokesperson),
the experiments are carried at the Fr trapping facility at TRIUMF in Vancouver, Canada.
The National Science Foundation and the JQI support our work.
The group may have research positions: for Post-Doctoral Associates, Graduate, and Undergraduate Students;
Summer/Academic Year. Please contact Luis A. Orozco lorozco at umd.edu directly.
Group Members. Includes CVs, collaborators, and past members with links to the dissertations of the former PhD students of the group.
Results from previous and current year:
Includes talks, public lectures,
poster presentations, and news releases.
