Description of Research

"Multidisciplinary investigations using state-selected atoms"

We are a (largely) experimental atomic physics research group. We apply atomic physics techniques to a wide range of problems, including:

* precise tests of physical laws and symmetries;

* the development of atomic clocks;

* biomedical and materials science investigations using

laser-polarized noble gas nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR);

* laser spectroscopy of coherently-prepared atomic media,

with applications to quantum information;

* low-energy atomic collisions; and

* theoretical investigations of Bose-Einstein Condensates.

Abstracts for recent research results

Group bibliography

Some ongoing projects are described at the following links:

* The 129Xe/3He dual noble gas maser

* The 21Ne/3He dual noble gas maser

* The cryogenic hydrogen maser

* The double-bulb rubidium maser

* The coherent population trapping clock

* Trapping light in coherently-prepared atomic media

* Probing porous media with gas diffusion NMR

* Low-field MRI of the lung gas space

* Gas exchange in the lung

* The dynamics of shaken and flowing granular media

* Studies of vortices in Bose Einstein Condensates

Some past projects are described here:

* Polarized xenon in rat lungs and body tissues

* Xenon uptake calculations for humans

* Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of laser-polarized

liquid xenon and gas-liquid exchange
