We study the energy spectrum of atoms trapped in a vertical 1D optical lattice in close proximity to a reflective surface. We propose an effective mo…

The addition or subtraction of a photon from a Gaussian state of light is a versatile and experimentally feasible procedure to create non-Gaussian st…

We performed a reference-free measurement of the transition energies of the $1s 2p\,^1P\_1\to 1s^2 \,^1S\_0$ line in He-like argon, and of the $1s 2s…

I revisit the problem of the interaction between two dissimilar atoms with one atom in an excited state, recently addressed by the authors of Refs.[1…

Multimode photon-subtraction provides an experimentally feasible option to construct large non-Gaussian quantum states in continuous-variable quantum…

Nearing a century since its inception, quantum mechanics is as lively as ever. Its signature manifestations, such as superposition, wave-particle dua…

We study the quantum correlations induced by spontaneous parametric down-conversion of a frequency comb. We derive a theoretical method to find the o…

An ultracold atom above a horizontal mirror experiences quantum reflection from the attractive Casimir-Polder interaction, which holds it against gra…

Non-Gaussian operations are essential to exploit the quantum advantages in optical continuous variable quantum information protocols. We focus on mod…

Random numbers are a fundamental ingredient for many applications including simulation, modelling and cryptography. Sound random numbers should be in…

We formulate a multiple scattering theory of light in media spatially disordered along two directions and homogeneous along the third one, without ma…

We study the quantum reflection of ultracold antihydrogen atoms bouncing on the surface of a liquid helium film. The Casimir-Polder potential and qua…
