Murray Holland

My research involves theoretical studies of Bose-Einstein condensation, including (1) the modes of oscillation, (2) the quantitative effect of interactions and loss processes, (3) the behavior of a condensate undergoing evaporative cooling, and (4) the thermodynamics of a small number of atoms. My future research interests include the damping processes of coherent excitations, quantum diffusion of the condensate phase, and new methods for treating quantum kinetic theory. I also investigate quantum optics, in which I study the properties of laser fields and their interaction with matter. My other interests include optical cavities and their interaction with atomic beams and quantum measurement theory.
