The Wright Research group uses ultra-cold quantum gases to study quantum many-body phenomena.

Areas of interest include macroscopic quantum phenomena (superfluidity), non-equilibrium dynamics, and coherent light-matter interactions.

Group Meeting / Ultracold Journal Club:
Thursday @ 11 p.m. in Wilder 103 (Graduate Student Lounge)
Journal Club papers are on the group wiki. (Internal access only)
Students: make a Journal Club suggestion from the RSS feeds below!

Lab Location: Wilder Basement, Rooms 17/18
The lab is only accessible through room 18, for safety reasons. Please ring the doorbell if you need to reach someone in the lab.

Evaporation in the “Sheet” Trap

With the “Feshbach” magnetic coils now working, we can control the interactions between lithium atoms when they are trapped in the glass “science” cell, and we have observed evaporative cooling of atoms in that trap. The density and temperature already look favorable enough to add in the beam that will shape the ultracold Fermi gas into a ring shape. One big step closer to our experimental goals.
