Welcome to the Quantum Information and Quantum Motion laboratory at The University of Auckland!
We conduct experimental research into the quantum behaviour of ultracold atoms. We have two focus areas. In the first experiment, an all-optical 87Rb Bose-Einstein condensate is combined with high-resolution imaging of a spatial light modulator, allowing us to create custom potentials from laser light. We focus specifically on the nature of quantum transport in the presence of disorder.
In the second experiment, Cs atoms interact with a tapered optical nanofibre, allowing us to develop quantum information between single atoms. We have recently developed a ring fibre cavity to probe the light-matter interaction at a fundamental level.
We are proudly affiliated with The Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies and with the Auckland University Department of Physics.
