I'm interested in nonlinear optics, atom optics and optical precision measurements. In nonlinear optics, I study photorefractive systems for measurement and information processing, especially self-organized information processing. Our group is currently investigating acoustic and RF antenna-array signal processing and sensing of chemical vapors. Atom-optics research centers on the development of atom waveguides, atom "chip" technology, and the use of Bose-Einstein condensates to make practical devices. The group is currently developing integrated atom interferometers for inertial navigation and other sensing applications.

Neutral Atoms for Quantum Information Processing Our research focuses on the use of ultra-cold atoms for neutral atom quantum information applications. We investigate the use of micro-fabricated magnetic traps (atom chips) and optical lattices as a means to trap and manipulate large arrays of atoms (qubits). To provide the necessary interaction between individual atoms we will investigate the use of micro-cavities.

Becker Group JILA, Boulder United States of America 40.0074363 -105.2686481 Theory theory
My research interests are related to the theoretical analysis and numerical simulation of ultrafast processes in atoms, molecules and clusters interacting with intense laser pulses. Laser systems currently generate light pulses with field strengths exceeding that of the Coulomb field within an atom or molecule. Pulse durations are as short as a few femtoseconds (10-15 sec) or even less in the attosecond regime, which correspond to the time scales of electron and nuclear dynamics in materials. My group pursues theoretical studies on the coherent control of chemical reactions, the observation of correlated electron dynamics in atoms and molecules, the imaging of molecular dynamics, and the propagation of ultrashort intense laser pulses. We often work in close collaboration with experimental groups.

Currently I am looking into the opto-mechanical properties of Bose-Einstein condensates in optical cavities. Particularly how the condensate modes can couple to the cavity mode and the mirror mode. I am also looking into the aspect of the use of BEC to detect weak forces. Other aspects that I am looking into is the parametric excitations of BEC.

Bohn Group JILA, Boulder United States of America 40.0074363 -105.2686481 Theory theory
My primary research centers on the theory of collisions between trapped atoms and molecules in a dilute gas at milliKelvin temperatures and below. In this novel energy regime, tiny energy splittings (due, for instance, to magnetic interactions or molecular rotations) dominate the collision dynamics. My goal is to unravel these delicate energy exchanges and assess their response to external electromagnetic fields. More broadly, I'm looking for novel approaches to understanding collective motions of many-body quantum-mechanical systems such as electrons in an atom or semiconductor device or atoms in a Bose-Einstein condensate.

Ultrafast optics is my primary research interest. In particular, I study the interaction of ultrashort pulses of light with semiconductors. In direct-gap semiconductors, such as gallium arsenide, the coherent optical response is determined by many-body interactions among electronic carriers excited by the incident pulses.

D'Incao Group JILA, Boulder United States of America 40.0074363 -105.2686481 Theory theory
The core of my research lies on the study of correlations in few-body atomic systems, i.e., systems with three or more atoms, at ultracold temperatures. Such systems are of fundamental importance for ultracold quantum gases, e.g., Bose-Einstein condensates and Degenerate Fermi gases. Collisions involving few atoms can determine the stability/lifetime of ultracold gases and allow for the control of the interactions in the system and the access of novel phases of the matter. Due to its extremely nonpertubative nature, few-body systems pose some of the greatest challenges facing theorists in various fields including atomic, molecular, particle and nuclear physics and chemistry.

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.

Our research is focused on the many-body dynamics of ultracold quantum gases far from thermal equilibrium, in particular for systems where strong correlations between the particles are important. We are applying and further developing recent substantial innovations in non-equilibrium quantum field theory for ultracold atomic gases. The functional field theory methods involve non-perturbative approximation schemes which recently have shown, by comparison with exact results, to excellently describe the far-from-equilibrium long-time dynamics of systems, even for strong interparticle forces. With this step a whole new class of phenomena can be accessed.

Our experiment creates dipolar Bose Einstein Condensates (BECs) of Cr atoms. In the last decade, the study of such ultracold atom gases has become an interdisciplinary and fascinating field. The realization of degenerate quantum gases opens the way to perform fundamental studies in quantum physics with an almost ideal dilute system displaying tunable properties (density, temperature, interaction strength, ...). This model system can be studied in a highly versatile environment since confining potentials can be tailored at will. Furthermore, since the analysis protocols benefit from the reliability of the laser spectroscopy techniques, the comparison between experimental outcomes and theoretical predictions is much sounder than what is usually met in condensed matter. To date the available atomic quantum gases are made of atoms interacting through isotropic short-range potentials. The long-range anisotropic dipole-dipole interaction between atoms carrying a large magnetic moment is expected to induce a wealth of new properties. For example, a supersolid phase arises when a dipolar quantum gas is transfered in a 2D lattice. The magnetic dipole moment of chromium in the ground state is 6µB. Due to this exceptionally large dipole moment, chromium degenerate gases represent ideal systems to investigate quantum dynamics under the influence of dipolar interactions. As a first stage to reach degeneracy, we set up a magneto-optical trap for the most abundant bosonic isotope 52Cr and for the fermionic isotope 53Cr. The two isotopes can be trapped separately as well as simultaneously producing a cold dipolar boson-fermion mixture. We studied the collisional properties of these cold gases. In a second stage, several millions 52Cr atoms are optically trapped at the focus of a powerful infrared laser at a temperature on the order of 100µK. Finally, we evaporatively cool the trapped 52Cr atoms down to degeneracy. We have studied the collective excitations of the chromium BEC and demonstrated the impact of the anisotropic dipole-dipole interactions on the frequencies of the low-energy collective vibration modes of the trapped BEC. In a further set of experiments, we have studied S=3-spin dynamics using our Cr-BECs either in 3D or in restricted 2D and 1D geometries. At very low magnetic fields, spontaneous demagnetization occurs which enables the study of the S=3-spinor physics. We plan to reach degeneracy for the fermionic isotope 53Cr , and to create strongly correlated systems, by extending our current experiments on the loading of our condensates into optical lattices. This will meet the current burst of interest in the statistical physics of such systems related to the field of quantum magnetism and will open new avenues for the processing of quantum information.

My research interests include laser stabilization and precise scan techniques using interferometry and/or heterodyne techniques, amplitude stabilization near the "photon-shot-noise" level with classical electro-optical methods, and "squeezed" beams of sub-shot-noise level or correlated photons produced in nonlinear interactions. I pursue continuous-wave approaches for application in both gravity-wave antennas and measurement of magnetically induced birefringence of the vacuum. Optical atomic clocks based on a strontium "atomic fountain" will allow "ultra-resolution" determination of linewidths < 10 Hz. A new modulation detection scheme permits cavity-enhanced nonlinear spectroscopy that provides unprecedented sensitivity (<10^-12 absorption) using molecular overtone transitions in the near-visible infrared.

My major interest includes the development of new light sources at short wavelengths and their use to study dynamic processes in material and chemical systems. In particular, the recent development of high-energy ultrashort-pulse laser technology (in large part by the research group I co-lead with Professor Murnane) allows generation of coherent extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) and soft-X-ray bursts of femtosecond (10-15 sec) and even attosecond duration. (For comparison, the ratio of 1 femtosecond to 1 second is about the same as the ratio of 1 second to 30 million years.) The time scales probed by these light pulses correspond to those of chemical reactions and dynamic processes in semiconductors. Thus short-pulse short-wavelength light provides researchers with a unique tool to observe specific atoms, leading to a deeper understanding of the microscopic mechanisms. In recent years, our group has developed a variety of new techniques to efficiently upconvert ultrashort laser pulses coherently into the EUV and soft-X-ray regions of the spectrum. I am also a founding member of the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center in Extreme Ultraviolet Science and Technology (http://euverc.colostate.edu/) and co-founder of a successful laser company (www.kmlabs.com).

My group uses a two-step process to prepare ultracold molecules of NH, a simple free radical. The first step, supersonic expansion, forces NH molecules through a small opening into a vacuum system, where intermolecular collisions cool the rapidly expanding gas (400 m/s) to less than 1 K. The second step uses varying electric fields (Stark deceleration) to slow the cold molecules to rest. Once the molecules are cold and stopped, we can subject them to magnetic trapping, electrostatic trapping, laser cooling, or sympathetic cooling. I plan to work with theorist John Bohn to investigate collisions of cold polar NH radicals (produced in this process) with each other and with ultracold atoms such as Rb.

Concerning quantum gases we are interested in physics of BEC-BCS crossover, dynamics of superfluid vortices, quantum turbulence, hydrodynamics and viscosity. In the case of nuclear systems we are interested in large amplitude nuclear dynamics and in particular microscopic description of fission/fusion, induced fission and low energy nuclear reactions. We use mainly the following theoretical tools: Path Integral Monte Carlo approach, Density Functional Theory (static and time-dependent). Computational tools: In order to address certain questions concerning strongly interacting quantum systems one needs (super)computers. We use both CPU machines which allow for a massively parallel computing, as well as those with hybrid architecture (CPUs + GPUs).

Recent lines of interest are - The atom diode: one way laser barriers for atomic motion - Shortcuts to adiabaticity: methods to accelerate expansions, transport and internal state manipulations without final excitations. - Diffraction in time: a phenomenon analogous to diffraction of light but due to time-dependent obstacles and slits. It will be of increasing importance in cold atom dynamics and applications such as the atom laser, time of flight and ultrashort pulses techniques.

My research focuses on the generation and application of ultrafast light pulses of only a few cycles in duration. For this work, Prof. Kapteyn and I design and build new types of lasers and investigate new methods for optical pulse shaping and control. One application of extremely short light pulses is to use them to generate coherent X-ray beams. These femtosecond (and possibly attosecond) duration X-ray pulses can be used to study nonlinear optics in regimes not accessible with any other techniques, for holography and microscopy, or to visualize the fastest processes in chemical and material systems. At present, we have a diverse mixture of physicists, engineers, and chemical physicists in our group.

My main research interest is ultracold atoms and molecules loaded in optical lattices, which are periodic trapping potentials created by illuminating the atoms and molecules with laser beams. Atoms in optical lattices are analogous to electrons in solid state crystals. Their big advantage is that these "artificial crystals of light" are perfectly clean and highly controllable. Therefore, they are ideal for exploring a whole range of fundamental phenomena that are extremely difficult — or impossible — to study in traditional condensed matter systems. My goal is to study how to control and manipulate these systems to engineer different quantum phases such as superfluids, insulators, quantum magnets, and topological matter. I plan to use them for understanding the physics of strongly correlated bosonic and fermionic systems and nonequilibrium phenomena. Additionally, I am interested in studying how to generate and manipulate entanglement in quantum systems for use in quantum information processing and precision measurements.

The research activity of our group is focused on the investigation of degenerate quantum gases by using the methods of statistical mechanics and thermal field theory. We study the thermodynamics of weakly-interacting Bose and Fermi superfluids (alkali-metal atoms like rubidium, sodium and lithium, but also atomic hydrogen) trapped in magnetic or magneto-optical traps. We analyze single-particle and collective elementary excitations by numerically solving both Bologliubov-de Gennes and Popov equations. Moreover, we investigate dynamical properties of Bose-Einstein condensates by using the time-dependent 3D Gross-Pitaevskii equation, which describes the macroscopic wave-function (order parameter) of the Bose condensate. Presently we are investigating the dynamics (collective excitations and free expansion) of a two-component Fermi gas in the BCS-BEC crossover and the formation of solitons in atomic mixtures of bosons and fermions. In particular, we are developing a reliable density functional for the unitary Fermi gas (infinite scattering length) at zero and finite teperature. We are planning to start the analysis of the condensate properties of p-wave Fermi atoms and d-wave superconductors in the BCS-BEC crossover both in two and three dimensions. Moreover, we are working on the many-body quantum tunneling dynamics of spin-polarized fermions in a double-well potential.

Sanchez-Palencia Group Ecole Polytechnique and CNRS France 48.7142971 2.2112917 Theory theory
The group conducts theoretical research on correlated quantum systems. In regimes of parameters where matter and fields are governed by the laws of quantum physics, the interplay of quantum interference and particle interactions gives rise to fascinating phenomena, such as Bose-Einstein condensation, Fermi degeneracy, superfluidity, superconductivity, entanglement, and quantum phase transitions for instance. In the group, our main efforts focus on the physics of systems that constitute promising platforms for concrete realization of quantum technologies. Together with other systems in condensed matter and quantum optics, ultracold atoms have already produced milestone results, which turn quantum technologies from dream to reality. In the recent years quantum simulation has established itself at the interface of experiments and theory. Hence most of the recent dramatic advances on quantum simulations own much to parallel experimental and theoretical developments. In the group, we work along three main lines:     Propose new protocols for quantum simulation;     Elaborate relevant models to interpret and understand simulation results;     Develop new theoretical approaches for correlated quantum systems. In this view, we develop both analytical approaches (field theories, mean field approximation, bosonization, ...) and numerical techniques (nonlinear Schrödinger equation, path integral quantum Monte Carlo, variational Monte Carlo, exact diagonalization, static and dynamics DMRG, ...). The main part of our work is purely theoretical but we also have long-term collaborations with experimental groups

Schmelcher Group Center for Optical Quantum Technologies - University of Hamburg Germany 53.577425 9.887146 Theory theory
The group explores several complementary aspects of ultracold physics. The electronic structure and quantum dynamics of ultracold Rydberg atoms and molecules including their dressing in light fields and the coherent excitation dynamics in multi-trap arrays represents one focus. To develop a deep understanding of the mechanisms of quantum and in particular tunneling dynamics is our goal in case of strongly correlated bosons in low-dimensional traps including optical lattices and waveguides. Ultracold scattering in low-dimensions leads to novel interaction properties of atoms with an immediate impact on the corresponding many-body systems. Confinement-induced resonances and molecules formation as well as confinement-induced transparency are examples. We study nonlinear excitations of Bose-Einstein condensates such as solitons and vortices including their stability, structure and dynamics. Formation of ultracold molecules and steering their dynamics via external electric fields such as quantum control of photoassociation processes open the door to a quantum state selective chemical reactions dynamics.

The main focus of our research is quantum information, but we also do some work on ultra cold atoms. In general most of our research can be described as quantum state engineering. One of the unique features of quantum optical systems is the extremely good experimental control over the systems, down to the level of controlling individual atoms and ions. In our research we develop theories for how one can use this extremely good experimental control to realize interesting physical effects. In particular we have developed theories for how one can realize quantum computers and for interesting effects, which can be realized with ultra cold atoms.

My research focuses on understanding the interface between ultracold atoms and quantum optics - an understanding I plan to apply to the field of precision measurement. I am presently devising strategies to reduce the effect of the fundamental quantum noise that arises from Heisenberg's uncertainty relationship as applied to atomic spins. In one project, I work on non-destructively measuring and canceling out the quantum fluctuations in the collective spin state of an ensemble of laser-cooled 87Rb atoms in a high-finesse optical cavity. By learning how to minimize the effect of quantum noise in this type of system, I hope to advance the precise measurements required for atomic clocks and in searches for permanent electric dipole moments in atoms and molecules.

We also use high-sensitivity techniques to define ultrastable optical frequency standards, currently being explored for their use in metrology, communications, and high-precision measurements such as in NASA's space-borne interferometers. The use of ultrafast lasers has revolutionized the field of optical frequency metrology, and we are actively pursuing research related to the concept and application of this novel field.

Data is from UltraCold Atom News (UCAN) webpage. Location was determined by Google Maps API (geocoding) of the institution name + country. A few locations returned 0 results (mostly the ones with 2 institutions listed), and those were added manually. Which atoms are cold in a particular group was determined manually, from the group's webpage. There are almost 250 groups listed here, so I limited myself to a couple of minutes on each webpage. I helped myself with this Google Search which gives a lot of false-positives and misses atoms, not on the list. I also didn't bother finding out the differences between different groups with the same webpage - I added See also in the comment. I apologize for any mistakes. If you see any, raise an Issue on GitHub or email me. If you don't see your group here I recommend adding it to the UCAN's list. I plan to periodically check it for updates and reflect them here.

Otherwise, this website is built with HTML, CSS, and javascript (Leaflet for the map). This is my first real project with any of these, so part of the purpose was to learn new skills. The source code is available here on GitHub, including the Python script which collected the database and generated parts of the webpage.
