Event Details & Abstract: 

I will describe recent experiments in which we have created record amounts of quantum entanglement-enhancement, or spin squeezing, in a proof-of-principle atomic sensor using entanglement-generating collective measurements.  These  techniques are expected to lead to practical quantum improvements in some of the world's best atomic sensors here at JILA and NIST which perform measurements with up to 18 digits of precision.
