Welcome to Yavuz Lab!
Quantum Optics and Ultrafast Physics
Yavuzlab is an experimental atomic physics
group at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. We specialize
in quantum optics and ultrafast physics.
Our research includes experimental,
computational, and theoretical studies that seek to answer a
variety of questions:
- Can we use visible light to produce
or resolve sub-nanometer images?
- Can we engineer the index of
refraction in an atomic system to produce interesting
behavior like lossless index enhancement or a negative
- Can we exploit the interaction of
light and molecules in order to efficiently turn one laser
into dozens of coherent lasers?
- Can we construct a continuous-wave
"white laser," a broadband coherent light source capable
of producing both sub-femtosecond pulses and arbitrary
- Can we localize populations of atoms
to regions much smaller than a diffraction-limited spot?
We investigate these and a variety of other
problems in our two optics labs and through computer modeling.
