How to dress radio-frequency photons with tunable momentum

Date: Wednesday, August 7, 2019 11:00 - 12:00
Speaker: Boris Shteynas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
Location: Heinzel Seminar Room / Office Bldg West (I21.EG.101)
Series: Physical Sciences Seminar
Host: Johannes Fink
Contact: WIDDMANN Sandra

We demonstrate how the combination of oscillating magnetic forces and radio-frequency (rf) pulses endows rf photons with tunable momentum. We observe velocity-selective spin-flip transitions and the associated Doppler shift. Recoil-dressed photons are a promising tool for measurements and quantum simulations, including the realization of gauge potentials and spin-orbit coupling schemes which do not involve optical transitions.
