This thesis describes the 1st demonstration of a cooperative optical non-linearity in response to Rydberg excitation. while in traditional non-linear optics the non-linearity arises at once from the interplay among gentle and topic, in a cooperative method it truly is mediated via dipole-dipole interactions among light-induced excitations. For excitation to excessive Rydberg states the place the electron is simply weakly sure, the dipole-dipole interactions are tremendous huge and lengthy variety, permitting a huge enhancement of the non-linear influence. for that reason, cooperative non-linear optics utilizing Rydberg excitations opens a brand new period for quantum optics allowing huge unmarried photon non-linearity to be available in loose area for the 1st time. The thesis describes the theoretical underpinnings of the non- linear impact, the pioneering experimental effects and implications for experiments within the unmarried photon regime.
