Theoretical Study of Quantum Optics in Inhomogeneous Environments(3/3)

Project Details


Quantum optics of different wavelengths in inhomogeneous environments will be theoretically investigated in this project. We plan to study six topics including driving nuclear transitions in an X-ray waveguide (topic X1), inhomogeneously pumped atomic system by X-ray free electron lasers (topic X2), interference between multiple X-ray scatterings at different targets and its controllability (topic X3), gamma-ray generation from a stirred and radioactive Bose-Einstein condensate in a trap (topic Q1), acoustic effects on electromagnetically induced transparency (topic Q2) and quantum optics in the undulator environment (topic Q3). These topics share the same concept of light-matter interactions in inhomogeneous environments but at different wavelength regime. Topics X1, X2 and X3 focus on X-ray regime, topic Q1 bridges visible light and gamma-ray regime, topic Q2 is about the interaction between visible slow light and acoustic waves and topic Q3 focuses on GHz to THz regime of electromagnetic spectrum. We wish to understand in inhomogeneous environments how to control nuclear, atomic and electronic or even positronic systems in their corresponding energy scale and discover new effects.
