Ultracold Atoms and Molecules Research
at the University of Washington
There are two main themes in our research work. In the first we cool and trap a mixture of two
different atomic species (lithium and ytterbium) for studies of interacting ultracold mixtures,
and preparation and studies of polar diatomic molecules. More details here
and in the publications and
In the second, we are developing precision atom interferometers with Bose-Einstein condensates with a major goal of measuring the fine structure constant and thus testing quantum electrodynamics at the sub-part per billion level. More details here and in the publications and presentations pages.
