Abstrakt

Cold atoms inside a hollow core fiber provide an unique system for studying optical nonlinearities at the few-photon level. Confinement of both atoms and photons inside the fiber core to a diameter of just a few wavelengths results in high electric field intensity per photon and large optical depths with a relatively small number of atoms. We present our experimental apparatus and discuss results regarding all-optical switching at ultra-low light levels.
