We are using atomic ensembles to investigate problems in quantum optics and quantum communications. We are currently using four-wave mixing in Rb vapor to create a high efficiency photon counter at 1.3 microns by upconverting to a 0.78 micron photon. This project is in collaboration with Prof. Luis Orozco.
