About Thad G. Walker's Work

My quantum information interests center on the use of highly excited atoms for conditional quantum manipulation; the quantum state of one atom evolves in controllable manner that is dependent of the state of a single other atom 10 microns away. Such processes form key building blocks for quantum computers and quantum optics. In the area of quantum sensing, I use atomic and nuclear spins as ultra-sensitive magnetic field sensors, or to search for possible laboratory manifestations of dark matter.
