  • 2020. 6. 22. The exploration of resonant dipolar collision in microwave dressed ultracold molecules

has been published in PRL!

              Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 063401 (2020)

              APS Physics Synopsis, "Microwave Manipulation of Cold Molecules"


  • 2020. 6. 4. Our research group has been selected as one of the recipients of the

"Samsung Science & Technology Foundation" research funds (press release - in Korean).



We are starting a new experiment to create a lattice gas of strongly dipolar molecules under a microscope objective. These molecules mimic the complicated dance of electrons and spins in strongly correlated materials and will give access to a host of exciting physics, from studying novel many-body states of matter to constructing molecule-based quantum processors. By using a high-resolution microscope objective, we aim to engineer and explore the exotic many-body states of this system with single lattice-site imaging capability.

Sounds exciting? Want to perform cutting-edge research in one of AMO's most exciting research fields? Join us! 

  • 2020. 3. 1. A new journey begins! It'll be an exciting adventure!
