Congratulations to Eric for receiving a Scott Anderson Outstanding Graduate Assistant Award for 2016 and to Alex for receiving a Fall 2016 University Fellowship!
The group travels to Chicago for MCAW, and Alex gives an invited talk on the group’s research.
The group is in Providence, RI for DAMOP 2016. Come and see talks by Eric and Alex on Tuesday morning at DAMOP! Eric will be talking about our realization of the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model with ultracold atoms and our direct observation of topological boundary states [11:30 am in room 552AB]. Alex will be discussing the study of disordered atomic […]
The group’s first experimental paper is published as a Rapid Communication in Physical Review A. Eric and Alex demonstrated a new “bottom-up” approach to simulating designer Hamiltonians for the study of lattice transport phenomena, based on resonantly addressing atomic matter waves. The experimental article can be found here, and a proposal describing our approach can be found here.
We made our first Bose–Einstein condensate of rubidium-87 atoms around 2 a.m. on August 25
