Ultracold atoms and molecules
Assoc. Prof. Shin Inouye
Our goal is to develop a new method to manipulate ultracold atoms and molecules and explore physics of strongly correlated condensed matter systems. Especially we are interested in producing a gas of quantum degenerate polar molecules by connecting ultracold atoms. A gas of ultracold polar molecules will be a good starting point for realizing chemical reactions controlled in all the degrees of freedom.
