Our research is concentrated on using ultracold atoms as a resource for studying aspects of condensed-matter and many-body physics, quantum and precision measurement, quantum optics and quantum atom optics. This research is being pursued in three laboratories with separate experimental setups. One lab (E3) employs atomic gases trapped within high-finesse optical resonators to study cavity opto-mechanics and cavity magneto-optics, and, more generally, the limits to and uses of quantum measurement. A second lab (E4) is pursuing applications of atom interferometry with guided atomic matter waves, and also the physics of quantum fluids in annular containers. A third lab (E5) is exploring a novel magnetic fluid -- the degenerate spinor Bose gas -- in which the phenomena of magnetism and superfluidity are intertwined.
We are constantly on the lookout for excellent students, postdocs, and visitors to join our efforts. Feel free to peruse this website and then to contact us for more information. You may also read through several review papers
