We are an experimental atomic physics group at the Australian National University in Canberra.

Our research ranges from atomlaser lithography through to atom interferometry, practical deep learning networks, squeezing and nonlinear atom optics.

Precision inertial sensing and timing

Our team operates a state-of-the-art quantum sensing program, including a BEC-based precision magnetic & gravity gradiometer and a Sr optical lattice clock.

Mixed species Bose-Einstein condensates

Using a combination of laser & evaporative cooling we create BEC mixtures of 85Rb and 87Rb in order to produce and study novel non-linear phenomena.

Deep learning networks for quantum systems

A stream of heavily integrated experimental and theoretical work aimed at developing next gen simulation, control and measurement systems.

Laser and fibre systems development

We are developing lasers, fibre amplifiers and integrated fibre optical systems to drive the future of quantum sensing with a focus on design for portable systems.
