Mission statement

Quantum science is key to the fundamental understanding of matter, radiation, and their interaction, and essential to the functioning of quantum technologies such as atomic clocks and SQUIDs, as well as quantum cryptography and next-generation interferometric sensors.  Our theoretical and experimental research spans and interfaces physics, chemistry, and applied mathematics in the study of low-energy quantum properties of matter and radiation; this includes ultracold quantum gases, cold molecules, quantum many-body theory, quantum dynamics, superfluidity, quantum and nonlinear optics with atomic vapours, Rydberg physics, quantum information processing, and cold quantum chemistry, with motivations ranging from the fundamental to the applied.
