Current Research

  • Experimental atomic and molecular physics, quantum gases, quantum many-body physics.

  • Collective excitation to high-lying Rydberg states from a degenerate gas of ground-state atoms in optical lattices;

  • Laser cooling and trapping;

  • Many-body physics with atomic Fermi gases;

  • Long-range interaction and strong correlation of Rydberg gases.
