Pablo Solano is interested in studying how matter interacts with light. Atoms are the building blocks of all around us, and the key to unlocking and harvesting the properties of the quantum world. Light, or rather the electromagnetic field, allows us to probe and control atoms. Due to recent technological developments, we can now interconnect distant atoms mediated by light, creating an extended quantum system. Solano’s research focuses on the physical effects and possible applications of interconnecting atoms at a distance. Coincidently, such platforms also interconnect experimental and theoretical aspects of atomic physics, quantum optics, and quantum information sciences.
