In the last few years, accelerating optical beams propagating along a curved trajectory have attracted a lot of attentions. Since Airy beams were the first to be introduced into optics, they have been employed in a variety of applications, such as the generation of curved plasma channels, optical trapping and manipulation, and micro-fabrication. It has been shown that accelerating beams can be...

Construction is underway at TRIUMF by an international collaboration on a high-density ultra-cold neutron source. Its primary experiment will be a measurement of the neutron electric dipole moment (nEDM). The experiment uses an NMR technique known as Ramsey resonance to detect electric-field correlated shifts in the precession frequency of ultra-cold neutrons. Previous-generation nEDM...

A strong need for computational power as well as limits of classical computers has led to the development of quantum information science. One of the critical problems in realizing quantum computing is manipulating quantum bits while maintaining coherence. One of the possible solutions is to use a hybrid system that combines the long coherence times available in microscopic quantum systems with...

Van der Waals interactions are fundamental for molecular reactions such as aerosol formation, adsorption of atoms and molecules on surfaces, protein conformation and many more. Infrared absorption spectra of weakly-bound van der Waals complexes provide the necessary information to develop inter-molecular potential energy surfaces. During the past five years, our group has been systematically...

One of the most important achievements in physics during recent years is the ability to create a Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) in neutral atoms. The study of BEC gives us an opportunity to discover new physics phenomena, to probe the laws of quantum mechanics and to better understand enigmatic world of small particles. A very powerful tool for these purposes is quantum simulation of...

High intensity laser systems are finding many new applications in MeV to GeV particle generation and acceleration to Fast Ignition pulses for Laser Fusion Energy Drivers. In some cases, in order to enhance the electric fields associated with the laser plasma interactions longer wavelengths are advantageous. Thus, there is considerable interest in the development of high intensity systems in...

Lots of efforts are currently made in many areas to bring quantum effects to the macroscopic level. A particularly dramatic class of macroscopic superposition states are the so-called cat states, which has been demonstrated in experiment with over one hundred microwave photons. In our recent works, we have proposed an experimental scheme to create spin cat states in Bose-Einstein condensates...

We describe the role of mode and particle entanglement in Quantum Enhanced Optical Metrology (QEOP). To this end we study the properties of the quantum Fisher information $\mathfrak{F}$ that bounds from below the sensitivity $\Delta^2 \varphi$ of any phase estimation protocol $\Delta^2 \varphi \geq 1/\mathfrak{F}$. We recently showed [1] that the optimal measurement sensitivity of quantum...

The line parameters for transitions of acetylene broadened by carbon dioxide are needed for studies of planetary atmospheres that have a high content of carbon dioxide. carbon dioxide-broadened line widths and nitrogen-pressure induced line shifts have been measured for transitions in the band of acetylene located at 1.53 microns at seven temperatures in the range 213–333K to obtain the...
