Abstract

I will present our progress towards the demonstration of a 1-atom based single-photon switch, utilizing cavity-QED with toroidal micro-resonators.
Practical single-photon switching, namely controlling the direction of one single-photon pulse with a control field that is another single-photon pulse, has not been achieved experimentally to date.
This device will also function as a 1-qbit quantum memory, enabling a deterministic quantum state transfer between a single photon and an atom, with no need for any control field.
