Welcome to the Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics pages
of Prof. Emeritus 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. The experimental work has used two platforms: Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) and Optical Nanofibers. The work explores 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, the Department of Energy, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the JQI, and the Department of Physics at UMD have supported the work.
Group Members. Includes CVs, collaborators, and past members with links to the dissertations of the former PhD students of the group.
