Ultra Cold Plasma Source

We are exploring the physics of laser-atom interactions on an experimental and theoretical basis, in particular with ultracold atoms. We have developed new imaging algorithms for ultracold atom clouds which will enable us to control the ultracold shape and thereby optimize the electron brightness of our new source. We are also using the ultracold atom cloud to produce high-resolution ion beams, and for investigating fundamental physics with ultracold Rydberg atoms.

Location: University of Melbourne, Parkville campus
