Abstract

Reversible light-matter interfaces are crucial elements in quantum optics and quantum information networks. In particular, the coupling of one-dimensional bosonic nanoscale waveguides and cold atoms appears as a promising pathway to build strong light-matter interaction thanks to the tight transverse confinement of light. Recently, our group has developed an interface where light, tightly guided by a subwavelength-diameter optical fiber (nanofiber), strongly interacts with atoms near its vicinity. In this case, a single atom close to the surface can absorb a non-negligible fraction of the guided light, as the effective area of the mode is comparable with the atomic cross-section. Moreover, using this configuration, it is possible to generate an in-fiber dipole trap for atoms in the vicinity of the waveguide. Using this all-fibered interface we have recently demonstrated the realization of an optical memory at the single photon level [1]. Here, we will describe the most recent result using this new interface: the observation of a large Bragg reflection off a 1D optical lattice [2]. The ability to control photon transport in 1D waveguides coupled to spin systems would allow for novel quantum network capabilities and many-body effects emerging from long-range interactions.
