atomic physics

ATOMIC, MOLECULAR, and OPTICAL PHYSICS

Experimental

Strongly interacting quantum gases and engineered quantum materials. Laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms to study many-body physics at ultralow temperatures. Formation of ultracold complex molecules in Bose gases and Cooper pairing in Fermi gases. Scalable quantum manipulations using ultracold atoms in optical lattices. Rydberg mediated interactions (EIT) between photons. Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics. Scalable quantum manipulations using ultracold atoms in optical lattices.

Theoretical

The theory of ultracold fermionic superfluids and the BCS-BEC crossover. Ionization dynamics and inner-shell physics of atoms, molecules, and clusters; strong-field and electron correlation effects in the VUV and x-ray regimes; collisions of low-energy electrons with molecules; high-precision spectroscopy; non-Hermiticity in quantum mechanics; computational methods.
