Dr Murray Olsen

ARC Future Fellow

I gained my PhD at the end of 1997 at Auckland University, working in the group of the late Dan Walls, one of the founders of the Waikato School of Quantum Optics. I worked on both quantum optics and nonlinear atom optics and was a co-author of the paper which began the field of phase-space investigations of Bose-Einstein condensates.
After my PhD, I worked for two years at the Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil, then a year back at the University of Auckland. I then gained a Fellowship from the NZ Foundation for Research, Science and Technology to work at the Universidade Federal Fluminense in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I joined ACQAO at the University of Queensland in June 2004 and have since undertaken research, teaching and supervision. My main research interests are quantum noise and how it manifests itself in the dynamics of atomic and optical systems.

Entanglement and Statistics Transfer in non-Gaussian Continuous-Variable Systems

A non-Gaussian system is one for which the outputs do not obey Gaussian statistics. In the continuous-variable regime, this normally means a nonlinearity of higher than second order in the interaction Hamiltonian. Well known systems meeting this criterion are trapped Bose-Einstein condensates...
