Quantum optics based on collective light-matter interactions
Prof. Dr. Charles Adams (Joint Quantum Centre (JQC), Durham University, Durham-Newcastle, UK)

When there is more than one emitter (or scatterer), light couples predominantly to collective modes, however, often the interesting consequences of these collective-mode interactions are masked by other effects such as atomic motion. In this talk, I will review some topics where the collective-mode interactions dominate such as light-matter interactions in cold dense ensembles and in Rydberg quantum optics. Also I will discuss the potential for the applications of engineered collective light-matter interactions to high-fidelity quantum technologies.
