Talk title:

Rydberg atoms in Cavity QED and in quantum metrology


Over the last twenty five years, my research group has used Rydberg atoms as an essential tool in Cavity QED and quantum information experiments. I will review our latest achievements, which include the generation and study of large Schrödinger cat states of light and the use of single-Rydberg atom interferometry to measure electric and magnetic fields with a precision beating the standard quantum limit. I will mention possible developments and practical applications of these studies as well as briefly discuss my views about the future of quantum technologies.
