CQRT Seminars

The Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) and Condensed Matter (CM) physics groups are hosting a joint seminar as part of the Center for Quantum Research and Technology (CQRT).  This endowed seminar series brings in experts from across the country as well as across campus to discuss the latest in research advances in quantum science.

Seminars in Spring 2021 will be conducted over Zoom and will be held on Tuesdays from 1:15-2:15pm or Fridays from 12:15-1:15pm, depending upon speaker availability.  If you wish to attend a seminar and are not on our mailing list, please contact either Kieran Mullen (kieran@ou.edu)  or Doerte Blume (Doerte.Blume-1@ou.edu) to obtain a link.

Spring 2021 (virtual Zoom series)

Title: Advanced laser development for uses in fundamental research into the Standard Model, quantum computation, and to the highest powers in industry

Dawn Meekhof, Lockheed Martin Aculight.

Friday, February 12, 2021
12:15-1:15pm (Zoom link will be announced)

Laser technology grew out of advanced pure research, and has proven to be an excellent new tool for many fields. My career has required developing new lasers for fundamental research into the Standard Model, for quantum computation, atomic clocks, advanced telecom products, medical devices, and defense systems. For some of this work, reaching an exact wavelength with 1 mW was necessary, for others building a massive system with 100kW. My career path has taken the laser technology from working to answer the most fundamental of scientific questions to practical applications in industry. In this talk, I will discuss the laser technology, the research, the applications, and how a scientific career in our world can evolve.
