Controlling ultracold gases

    Project Details

    Description

    This project will develop novel techniques for controlling the quantum state of ultracold atomic gases. These will include: large optical forces due to ultrafast laser pulses, measurement-based feedback, shaped radio frequency pulses in a magnetic field gradient, and coupling with optical fields in a quantum memory. Ultracold atomic gases are already some of the 'cleanest' quantum systems available, and are used in state of the art precision measurement, and to investigate a wealth of fundamental quantum phenomena that were previously experimentally inaccessible. This project will develop our unique theoretical tools for describing these systems, and provide key theoretical direction for several experimental programs in quantum science.
