JoLab Build an Atomic Quantum Simulator & emulate Quantum Materials
We are an experimental Atomic Molecular Optical (AMO) physics group using ultracold atoms within the physics department at HKUST. Our group currently utilizes atomic quantum simulators and explores the interface between AMO physics, condensed-matter and quantum information science. For example, we aim to deeply understand topological quantum matters with strong correlations. We routinely lower the temperature of the atomic gas down to nano-kelvin near the absolute zero where new quantum states of matter such as Bose-Einstein condensate and High-Tc superconductivity are expected. For more details, please refer the references or our research page.

We are hiring  graduate students and postdocs now.
If you are interested in joining us, please contact Dr.Gyu-Boong Jo
