Cooperative non-linear optics using Rydberg atoms — •Charles Adams — Durham University, Durham, UK

The giant dipole associated with transitions between highly excited Rydberg states can be used to control the optical response of up to 1000 neighbouring atoms. This gives rise to a large cooperative optical non-linearity [1] that is effective at the single photon level providing the basis for fully deterministic all-optical quantum processing. In this talk we will discuss our recent progress in the area of Rydberg non-linear optics and present prospects for future developments.
