We conduct theoretical and computational studies of ultracold atomic gases in collaboration with experimental and other theoretical groups. Recent topics of interest include atomtronics of cold-atom devices, physics of analog black holes, supersolidity, nanokelvin thermometry, atom lasers, optical lattices, solitons and collective excitations, atomic analogs of spintronics, simulating graphene and quantum spin Hall systems, competition between interactions and disorder in the superfluid-insulator transition, and new theoretical and experimental techniques for accurate measurements of ultracold atomic gases. This work is performed within the context of the Joint Quantum Institute of NIST and the University of Maryland, which offers access to expertise in many areas of atomic, molecular, optical, and condensed matter physics.
