The Chin Group explores the quantum world at the lowest temperatures scientists can achieve—nearly a billionth of a degree Kelvin above absolute zero. Ultracold atoms and molecules are incredibly versatile tools for creating designer science experiments. Their versatility stems from the many forms of precise control that physicists have developed over recent years. This exquisite control has opened up a world of new opportunities for learning about fundamental physics as well as simulating complex systems of interest. We harness these powerful tools in order to learn about a wide variety of topics in modern science.

Topics: Laser Cooling and Trapping, Ultracold Atoms and Molecules, Bose-Einstein Condensation, Quantum Information Processing
