A well isolated environment can be ideal for a quantum system to perform e ciently. Unlike this a PhD student needs to interact with many people during the course to complete a research project timely. Having said that, here is a list of people whom I would like to pay my deepest and profound gratitude. I would like to thank my rst principal supervisor Prof. David Kielpinski, who accepted me to work in his research group and guided me like a professional physicist. Later on, sudden news about his permanent departure to USA at the stage when I was really close to nish a project was quite challenging. Nevertheless, Dr. Erik Streed and Dr. Mirko Lobino took me under their wings as new advisers with their instrumental counselling to complete my PhD thesis. My special thanks goes to Dr. Tim Byrnes from New York University, with whom I did some theoretical work mentioned in the thesis. Beside these, my lab fellows including Matthew Petrasiunas, Valdis Blums, Paul Fisher, Dr. Ben Norton and Dr. Moji Ghadimi were very instructive and helping during my stay at Gri th University. Above all, I have no words to thank my parents and family for their selfess support over the years. An experimental research project is no more than a dream without money. Therefore, I would like to say a big thanks to all the funding agencies who were linked to this project, directly or indirectly from the beginning to end, including Gri th University for their international postgraduate research and postgraduate research scholarships, the US air force and the Australian research council.
