Our research focuses on Quantum Optics, Ultra-cold physics
such as optical lattices, Bose-Einstein condensation, and applications to Quantum
Information Processing. Details on current and recent research projects
and funded grants can be found in the research area.
Our group currently consists of four Post-doctoral researchers, nine full time DPhil students and is
headed by Dr. D. Jaksch. Details are available in the members area.
If you are interested in joining us then we can provide you with further
information and look forward to hearing from you. You are invited to apply for a DPhil place at any time of the year following the
standard postgraduate application procedures
of the university. Open positions for Post-Docs are advertised on the
Atomic and Laser website.
All group publications are listed in the publications area.
