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 index? 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
optical waveforms? 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.
