Theorist Murray Holland and his students have figured out a way to understand the quantum behavior of atoms inside every laser in JILA, including two superradiant lasers in the Thompson lab that work entirely differently from all the others. Their secret: the application of SU(4) group theory, originally used to explain quark physics, to the quantum behavior of atoms in a laser.

Studies of the interaction of light with matter in the 20th century led first to the development of quantum theory and then to tremendous progress in our understanding of atoms, molecules, and materials. Today, armed with a fundamental understanding of atoms, molecules, and optics, physicists stand ready to tackle research that just a few decades ago seemed impossible: the precise control of...

Optical waveform generation and control is an exciting research area in laser physics. The development of radio-frequency waveform generators during the early part of the 20th century helped lay the foundation for the global electronics industry. The development ofoptical waveform generators promises at least a thousandfold improvement in the speed and processing capacity of today’s best...

For more than two decades, Margaret Murnane and Henry Kapteyn, who co-lead the Kapteyn/Murnane group, have worked at the forefront of ultrafast laser science. For instance, the group invented the first sub-10 femtosecond mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser that is now a standard fixture in thousands of laboratories around the world, including several here at JILA. Their group also developed...

JILA physicists manipulate light to produce ultrashort laser pulses and then study these pulses to gain insight into the fundamental properties of light itself. Via techniques in laser physics, they explore the fastest processes in the natural world using ultrafast pulses on the femtosecond (10-15 s), attosecond (10-18 s), and zeptosecond (10-21 s) time scales. This...
