Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics

diagram

Researchers in AMO physics at Yale are studying the fundamental interactions of light and matter from the scale of single atoms and molecules to massive (nano-gram to milli-gram scale) optomechanical systems.  These experiments are pushing new frontiers in controlling and characterizing the properties of these systems, with applications to studying quantum many-body systems, manipulating and cooling single molecules, studying the mechanical properties of massive objects in the quantum regime, and precision sensing for tests of fundamental physics.
