Dataset for "Atomic dispensers for thermoplasmonic control of alkali vapor pressure in quantum optical applications"

Alkali metal vapors enable access to single electron systems, suitable for demonstrating fundamental light-matter interactions and promising for quantum logic operations, storage and sensing. However, progress is hampered by the need for robust and repeatable control over the atomic vapor density and over the associated optical depth. Until now, a moderate improvement of the optical depth was attainable through bulk heating or laser desorption – both time-consuming techniques. This study attempts to produce better results by using plasmonic nanoparticles.

This dataset contains data supporting the results presented in the paper "Atomic dispensers for thermoplasmonic control of alkali vapor pressure in quantum optical applications". It includes the data used to plot each figure, together with the raw oscilloscope data in .csv format, associated with this publication.

This study uses plasmonic nanoparticles as an alternative to the conventional means, such as bulk heating or laser desorption to convert light into localized thermal energy and to achieve optical depths in warm vapors, which was proven to produce far improved results. The response is over a thousand times faster than previously observed corresponding to a ~16 times increase in vapour pressure in less than 20 ms., with possible reload times much shorter than an hour. The results enable robust and compact light-matter devices, such as efficient quantum memories and photon-photon logic gates, in which strong optical nonlinearities are crucial.

Supplementary Information of the publication contains more details on the methodology and data preparation.

Coverage

Collection date(s):

From 1 January 2018 to 1 May 2018

Documentation

Data collection method:

Full details of the methodology may be found in the supplementary information of the associated paper. .CSV files were recorded with an oscilloscope using the setups in Figures 2 and 6a of the paper. Extinction spectra were recorded with a commercial Applied Photophysics Chirascan. All spectra were recorded over the range of 300 nm – 1100 nm with a resolution of 1 nm. AFM profile was obtained with a Multimode Scanning Probe Microscope (Veeco, Plainview, NY) with a Nanoscope IIIA controller in contact mode in ambient conditions.

Data processing and preparation activities:

Full details of how the data were processed may be found in the supplementary information of the associated paper.
