Paper Abstract

We review a hollow-core anti-resonant reflecting optical waveguide (ARROW) based platform for atom photonics. This platform has been used to demonstrate linear and non-linear spectroscopy and quantum coherence effects in hot rubidium vapor on chip. We discuss several advancements to this platform. All-metal seals significantly improve the lifetime of integrated alkali vapor cells. Additional control beams can be used to produce slower light and to slow down atoms via optical scattering and gradient forces. Specifically, a new technique for slowing atoms on a chip based on a spatially varying AC Stark shift is discussed. Moreover, the planarity of the ARROW waveguide platform lends itself to creating advanced layouts with multiple integrated vapor cells for implementing a variety of photonic device functions.
