Vladan Vuletic is Lester Wolfe Associate Professor of Physics at MIT. He earned the physics diploma from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and, in 1997, a PhD in physics from the same institution.
A Lynen Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University from 1997 to 2000, he was appointed an assistant professor in the Department of Physics at Stanford in 2000 and in 2003 accepted an assistant professorship in physics at MIT. He was promoted to associate professor in 2004 and tenured in 2007. His research focuses on atom-light interaction for the generation of nonclassical states of atoms and light fields.
Topics currently studied in his research group are quantum information processing with cold atoms and ions, spin squeezing for improving atomic clocks beyond the standard quantum limit, and nonlinear optics at the few-photon level.
