Atoms entangled forever
Speaker:Eugene Polzik (Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen)
Abstract:The talk will review precision quantum engineering of macroscopic atomic ensembles via a quantum interface of atoms with light. Key operations, such as generation of entangled states of atoms and light, quantum non-demolition measurements, and swapping of quantum states between photons and atoms will be reviewed. I will focus on the most recent development ? atomic entanglement which has been continuously maintained for up to one hour. This steady state entanglement is generated via an engineered dissipation and continuous measurement. Applications range from quantum teleportation of light onto atoms, to quantum memory for light, to magnetometry with record sensitivity, and to atom clocks.

Self-assembly of transition metal rings on single layer h-BN/Rh(111)
Speaker:Fabian Natterer (EPFL Lausanne)
Abstract:Upon deposition of per mill amounts of cobalt (iron) on hexagonal (h) boron nitride at low temperature, we observe the formation of nanostructures lying like a necklace around the circular part of the (12 x 12) h-BN/Rh(111) moiré unit cell. These atomic chains, bent to a closed ring of 2 nm diameter, contain at least four and up to 12 equidistant Co (Fe) atoms. Differences in work function between wire and hole region result in an electric field that is trapping adatoms [1]. Low temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy results indicate short range repulsion between the ring atoms. The rings are metastable as interactions with the electric field of the tunnelling tip or gentle annealing may transform the ring into a compact Co cluster. Surprisingly, this process is reversible for Co where we observe that compact clusters get converted into rings by annealing. At low Co (Fe) coverage, the rings are several tens of (12 x 12) unit cells apart, implying large Co (Fe) adatom diffusion rates down to the lowest studied deposition temperatures of 10 K.
