Professor Jun Ye's research focuses on the development of new tools for light-matter interactions and their applications in precision measurement, quantum physics, and frequency metrology. He has co-authored 400 scientific papers and has delivered over 600 invited talks. Among his many awards and honors are Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics, N.F. Ramsey Prize (APS), I.I. Rabi Award (IEEE), I.I. Rabi Prize (APS), and W.F. Meggers Award (OSA).
Tick Atoms in Unison
The Constant bearing the name of Professor Rydberg unveiled the discrete nature of quantum states for individual atoms.Today we extend such discreteness to the quantum states of many atoms. Precise engineering of these quantum states of matter and innovative laser technology are revolutionizing atomic clocks and metrology, providing new opportunities to explore emerging phenomena, test fundamental symmetry, and search for new physics. The recent work of measuring gravitational time dilation at the sub-millimeter scale highlights exciting prospects for new discoveries and we may yet again call on Professor Rydberg’s help.
