Abstract:The advent of integrated optics has allowed the miniaturization of optical platforms from the size of an optical table to the size of a fingernail.
An introduction to this field of science andtechnology will be presented. I will discuss recentwork on the precision measurements of opticalphase, frequency, and rotation using this type ofminiature optical sensor. The incorporation of
``weak value amplification’’ a technique that sacrifices power for improved signal into integrated optical platforms will be presented.
About our speaker: Prof. Jordan received his B.S. in Physics and Mathematic s (1997) from Texas A&M University and his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics (2002) from the University of California, Santa Barbara, supervised by Prof. Mark Srednicki. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Geneva (2002 2005) with Prof. Markus Büttiker, and a research scientistat Texas A&M (2005 2006) with Prof. Marlan Scully. He served on the faculty at the University of Rochester from 2006 2021. Dr. Jordan joined Chapman University in 2021 as co Director ofthe Institute for Quantum Studies and Professor of Physics. He is a member of the APS, Optica,and is a Simons Fellow in theoretical physics.
