    Abstract

    This project is concerned with ultra-sensitive characterization of the interaction of microwave and optical transitions in atomic clouds and solid materials. Microwave Electron Spin Resonance spectroscopy is performed on low loss ferromagnetics and paramagnetic, rare-earth impurity ions in crystal lattices, searching for systems capable of strong coupling. In the optical regime, laser-cooled and trapped neutral Ytterbium atoms are spectroscopically studied with an aim to develop an optical lattice clock for the international Atomic Clock Ensemble in Space mission. This expertise is developing enabling techno logy towards optical coupling to crystals, targeting microwave-optical quantum conversion applications within a hybrid quantum system paradigm.
