Ultracold quantum matter

Group Leaders:

From a certain temperature on, the molecules condense without attractive forces, that is, they accumulate at zero velocity. The theory is pretty but is there also some truth to it?

Albert Einstein

We are interested in the properties of Bose-Einstein condensates, an exotic state of matter predicted above, and how we can use these objects in tests of fundamental physics. We are also interested in producing modular cold atom sources, producing variable, high-flux atomic beams for a range of applications.
