Ultracold Atoms

The 'ultracold' part of the Midlands Physics Alliance (MPA) targets cutting-edge interdisciplinary research at the rapidly evolving interface between cold atom, condensed matter, and optical physics. MPA ultracold builds on, and integrates with, the large established programmes in condensed matter physics, nanoscience, and cold atom/condensed matter theory. The vision of MPA ultracold is to create a critical mass of cold-atom related knowledge to take full benefit of cross-field synergies and efficiently cover the full range from fundamental physics to high-profile applications.
