MS Defense - Christopher Roettgen

Chris successfully defended his masters thesis on August 27, 2008.

TITLE:
Laser System for the Fabrication of Toroidal Microcavities

ABSTRACT:
Toroidal micro-cavities have been shown to be one of the leading types of cavities for use in strong atom-cavity coupling. This property makes these cavities ideal for a range of applications from cavity quantum electrodynamics studies, to development of single photon sources, and quantum information technologies. The purpose of this project was to setup and test a laser facility for the final step in fabricating toroidal micro-cavities. The facility will later be used for production of these cavities for use in ongoing experiments within the UMBC Quantum Information Group.
