Biography

Morgan Mitchell, PhD. from U. C. Berkeley in 1999, is ICREA Professor of Quantum Optics at The Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona, where he leads the experimental research group in Atomic Quantum Optics.  He has made many contributions to the study of quantum noise in atomic instruments, including the first optical magnetometer operating beyond the photon shot noise limit, the first optical magnetometer operating beyond the projection noise limit, and several protocols for generation of metrologically advantageous squeezed and entangled states.
