Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We propose a scheme for single-atom, quantum control of the direction of propagation of a multi-photon coherent optical pulse incident, via a tapered fiber, upon a microtoroidal whispering-gallery-mode resonator.
