Spin squeezing in a Rydberg lattice clock.

Gil, L.I.R. and Mukherjee, R. and Bridge, E.M. and Jones, M.P.A. and Pohl, T. (2014) 'Spin squeezing in a Rydberg lattice clock.', Physical review letters., 112 (10). p. 103601.


We theoretically demonstrate a viable approach to spin squeezing in optical lattice clocks via optical dressing of one clock state to a highly excited Rydberg state, generating switchable atomic interactions. For realistic experimental parameters, these interactions are shown to generate over 10 dB of squeezing in large ensembles within a few microseconds and without degrading the subsequent clock interrogation.
