We are an experimental group working in the field of ultra-cold atoms. We are located within the Department of Quantum Science at the Australian National University in Canberra. Our group was part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum-Atom Optics which ran from 2003 to 2010.  

Currently our experimentalists are pursuing four major goals: 

(1) Understanding and developing high brightness atom laser systems, including producing a continuously pumped atom laser.  

(2) Precision atom interferometry with BEC and atom laser beams, utilising Bragg transitions. 

(3) Experiments utilising Bose-Einstein condensates with tuneable interactions.

You can find out more about us on these pages, but if there's something that interests you that's not here let us know. 

We also try to get out and enjoy the beautiful environment Canberra has to offer!  See our photo pages.
