Overview

Professor Halina Rubinsztein-Dunlop’s research interests are in the fields of atom optics, laser micromanipulation, nano optics, quantum computing and biophotonics.

She has long standing experience with lasers, linear and nonlinear high-resolution spectroscopy, laser micromanipulation, and atom cooling and trapping. She was one of the originators of the widely used laser enhanced ionisation spectroscopy technique and is well known for her recent work in laser micromanipulation. She has been also working (Nanotechnology Laboratory, Göteborg, Sweden) in the field of nano- and microfabrication in order to produce the microstructures needed for optically driven micromachines and tips for the scanning force microscopy with optically trapped stylus. Recently she led the team that observed dynamical tunnelling in quantum chaotic system. Additionally Prof. Rubinsztein-Dunlop has led the new effort into development of new nano-structured quantum dots for quantum computing and other advanced device related applications.

Research Interests

  • Biophotonics
    The multidisciplinary Centre for Biophotonics and Laser Science is engaged in projects such as laser dentistry, optical micromanipulation and hyperpolarised NMR gas imaging.
  • Nano-optics and quantum computing
    We study colloidal quantum dots for use in future quantum technologies. Our system is based on a fluorescence activated PbS quantum dot. We are developing techniques for single dot detection, for the demonstration of a single qubit operation, and for controlled entanglement between two dots.
  • Laser micromanipulation
    We are characterising the optical forces developed in laser tweezers, including micro-rotational dynamics studies and optical angular momentum transfer. We have demonstrated the principals of an all optically-driven micromachine. Our studies are multidisciplinary, involving synaptic connections, microrheology, DNA twisting, and cell properties.
  • Atom optics
    Using laser beams, we trap and cool atoms until their behaviour is governed by quantum theory. We have used this technology to verify theoretical predictions, such as dynamic quantum tunnelling. Our recent work involves the production of a micro-Bose Einstein condensate, which can be moved around on an �atomic chip�.
