MATTER-LIGHT ENTANGLEMENT WITH COLD ATOMIC ENSEMBLES
In this thesis I present the investigations of matter-light entanglement in cold
atomic samples. Particularly, entanglement of mixed species ensembles and bichromatic light fields is proposed and demonstrated experimentally. This approach avoids
the use of two interferometrically separate paths for qubits entanglement distribution.
I also present the first implementation of multiplexed quantum memory, and experimentally demonstrate entanglement involving arbitrary pairs of elements within this
memory array. Finally, quantum interference of electromagnetic fields emitted by
remote quantum memory elements separated by 5.5 m is realized.
