This thesis describes the 1st demonstration of a cooperative optical non-linearity in line with Rydberg excitation. while in traditional non-linear optics the non-linearity arises at once from the interplay among gentle and subject, in a cooperative procedure 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 super huge and lengthy diversity, permitting a massive enhancement of the non-linear impression. as a result, 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 house 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.
