Structured light - structured atoms — •Sonja Franke-Arnold — Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow, UK
Complex vector light is recently receiving increased attention, both from a fundamental and applied view point. It formally shares properties of quantum entanglement, it can be focused below the conventional diffraction limit, and it allows us to explore and employ the full mode space available for light-matter interactions. In this talk I will present a simple and efficient method to generate arbitrary vector fields, introduce concurrence as a useful tool to analyse their 'vectorness', and demonstrate their interaction with cold atomic gasses.
