Amir Kordbacheh is a PhD student in Quantum Physics who has been working on theoretical atom optics within the Atom Laser and Quantum Sensors Group, ANU since 2015.
He completed his Bachelor of Science in the field of Atomic and Molecular Physics from Urmia University, Iran in 2010. He was awarded one of the most distinguished university prizes for being the brilliant talented student over all undergraduates admitted in the same year. He began his Master studies in the field of Atomic Physics at Urmia University in 2010. His work was mainly focused on the Quantum Optics, Quantum Computers, Quantum algorithms, specifically the Grover Quantum search algorithm as well as Adiabatic Passage Techniques, Quantum entanglement and Atom-Laser-Cavity systems. During his Master time, he worked at the same university as a teaching assistant, holding a number of problem-solving classes for undergraduate students for four semesters.
In 2012, he graduated with a Master of Philosophy, ranked 1st among all students, identified as the top student, and he received an outstanding University medal. From 2012-2014, he was employed as a lecturer at some of the state-run universities in Iran such as Mohaghegh Ardabili University, teaching the sub-courses of physics (e.g. Quantum Mechanics, Fundamentals of physics and etc.) to undergraduate students.
In 2014, he won a highly prestigious and competitive International University Research Scholarship (URS) to study at ANU, and in 2015, he started his PhD research, focusing on the Atom Lithography and Nano Fabrication with the Bose Einstein Condensate (BEC) of ultra-cold Alkali atoms. During his freshman year, he dealt with some experimental stuff including electronics and worked on the Analog and Digital Phase Lock Loop (PLL). Since the sophomore year, he has been working on the theory aspect of focusing the Rb BEC through the optical lattices down to nano meter scales considering the s-wave interactions between atoms. His current research interest includes Atom-Laser lithography which is a perfectly collimated atomic beam outcoupled from a BEC that is focused and deposited down on a given substrate. One of the particular promising applications of this work could be the use of Atom Laser beams to build 3D integrated chips for computer processors.
