Laser Cooling and Trapping Group

We use ultracold gases and other atomic systems to study quantum phenomena including many-body physics, superfluidity, and quantum information.

A New Playbook for Interference

Particles can sometimes act like waves, and photons (particles of light) are no exception. Just as waves create an interference pattern, like ripples on a pond

Mystery of the Dark Solitons

When your heart beats, blood courses through your arteries in waves of pressure. These pressure waves manifest as your pulse, a regular rhythm unperturbed by

Realization of a deeply subwavelength adiabatic optical lattice

Author(s)
Ian B. Spielman, Ana Valdes Curiel, Russell P. Anderson, T. Andrijauskas, Gediminas Juzeliunas, Qiyu Liang, Junheng Tau, Dimitrius Trypogeorgos, Mingshu Zhao
We propose and realize a deeply sub-wavelength optical lattice for ultracold neutral atoms using $N$ resonantly Raman-coupled internal degrees of freedom

Electron Induced Massive Dynamics of Magnetic Domain Walls

Author(s)
Hilary M. Hurst, Victor Galitski, Tero T. Heikkila
We study the dynamics of domain walls (DWs) in a metallic, ferromagnetic nanowire. We develop a Keldysh collective coordinate technique to describe the effect
