Abstract

The optical lattice offers a flexible environment for quantum-state control and measurement. In addition, once the intrinsic incoherent processes have been suppressed, dissipation may be re-engineered into the system in the form of well-characterized fluctuations in the lattice parameters, allowing for a detailed study of the decoherence process.
