Experimental Atomic & Optical Physics

We study magnetic interactions between laser-cooled atoms and MEMS resonators for

  • quantum information science
  • quantum simulation
  • studies of quantum behavior at macro-scales
We also study optical-cooling and trapping of dielectric microspheres for
  • ultra-precision force measurements
  • investigations of the Casimir effect
  • searching for non-Newtonian gravity at the micron-scale
Our work at UNR began in Spring 2011.
