We demonstrate chalcogenide optical fiber couplers designed with a transmission spectrum response that varies with input power. The measured critical power is as low as 126 W at a wavelength of 1938 nm.

In this abstract, we purpose an optical delay line based on optical nanofibers. Silica high elasticity and the low pulling force required to stretch a nanofiber allow to get optical delays up to 20 picoseconds with a 10 centimeter-long optical nanofiber at telecommunications wavelength.

Experimental investigation of light-matter interaction when transitioning from cavity QED to waveguide QED

Cavity quantum electrodynamics (cavity QED) is conventionally described by the Jaynes- or Tavis-Cummings model, where quantum emitters couple to a single-mode cavity. The opposite scenario, in which an ensemble of emitters couples to a single spatial mode of a propagating light field, is described by waveguide QED, where emitters interact with a continuum of frequency modes. Here we present an experiment where an ensemble of cold atoms strongly couples to a fiber-ring resonator with variable length containing an optical nanofiber. By changing the length of the resonator we can tailor the density of frequency modes and thus explore the transition from cavity QED to waveguide QED. We analyse the response of the ensemble--cavity system after the sudden switch-on of resonant laser light and find that for progressively longer resonators, the Rabi oscillations typical of cavity QED disappear and the single-pass dynamics of waveguide QED appear. Our measurements shed light on the interplay between the single-pass collective response of the atoms to the propagating cavity field and the ensemble--cavity dynamics.
