A-Z List of Projects

Main Research Themes

Our research spans most areas of 'Quantum Science'. Main thematic areas are shown below (most containing a number of sub-themes)

An overview of some of those areas are also featured in the talks of the JQC launch event held on 26 June 2013.


Atomic Bose-Einstein Condensates

We study both experimentally and theoretically a number of features of trapped ultracold atomic Bose-Einstein condensates....

Experiment

Our experiments study Bose-Einstein condensates, ultra-cold molecules, interacting Rydberg atoms, and slow light....

Quantum Fluids and Superfluid Turbulence

We investigate vortex dynamics in quantum fluids, focusing on superfluid turbulence in helium and atomic condensates....

Quantum Optics

We study quantum properties of light propagating through thermal atomic vapours, and intense laser fields....

Rydberg Systems

We are studying the properties of Rydberg-excited atoms, in Rubidium and Strontium gases, for a variety of potential applications,...

Theory

We study a broad range of topics, including ultracold gases and molecules, liquid helium, intense laser fields, Rydberg states....

Thermal Atomic Vapour Cells

Studying the properties of hot, dense vapours of alkali atoms...

Ultracold Molecules

We study ultracold molecules theoretically and experimentally, including the formation of Feshbach molecules, and cooling of polar...
