Implementing FPGA-Based Feedback Control of a Single Atom With LabVIEW and NI FlexRIO

Figure 1. Part of the laser system used to study the fundamental interaction of light and matter. The system includes a variety of lenses, mirrors, and optical modulators.

"Using NI FlexRIO, we created our own high-performance custom hardware. With LabVIEW FPGA, we were able to quickly develop our FPGA code because of its high level of abstraction, while also integrating VHDL IP when applicable."

- Christian Sames, Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics

The Challenge:
Developing a custom time digitizer to study fundamental quantum properties of light-matter interaction.

The Solution:
Using NI FlexRIO and the NI LabVIEW FPGA Module to build a powerful and versatile custom instrument that allows us to implement real-time execution of time-critical tasks in hardware. This makes it possible to implement feedback control for systems as small as a single atom interacting with single photons.
