Freegarde/Himsworth Group

University of Southampton - GB United Kingdom
Our research uses coherent, pulsed interactions and spatially-varying dipole forces, is both experimental and theoretical, and ranges from atom interferometry and quantum computation, to optical tweezers, optically-induced self-organization and cavity-mediated cooling. We also explore underpinning technologies and techniques from laser modulation, stabilization and the design and analysis of resonant enhancement cavities, to miniature pumps, atom sources and optical components for integrated atom chips, and we collaborate closely with colleagues in nanofabrication to explore the use of nanostructured surfaces for atomic manipulation.
