Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics

Atomic, molecular and optical physics research interests are on developing ways to dynamically manipulate, control and understand interacting atomic molecular and optical systems. The main goals are to use them as quantum simulators of solid state materials and high energy systems, as quantum information processors, and to engineer improved quantum devices and technologies such as ultra-precise atomic clocks and quantum sensors. Topics at the top of our research priorities are: orbital quantum magnetism, quantum metrology with many-body states, topological quantum matter and non-equilibrium open driven quantum systems.
