Quantum Optics Colloquium

Single or samples of few atoms trapped in optical microtraps provide an exciting platform for studying fundamental quantum processes at the individual event level. Furthermore, such systems hold promise for quantum technology applications. In this talk I will describe our experiments on how to deterministically prepare individual atoms in optical microtraps and how to no non-destructively count them using fluorescence detection. Finally, I will discuss our recent experiments towards assembling individual molecules atom by atom.
