We get some inspiration after speaking with Dr Jesús Pérez Ríos, member of Professor Chris H. Greene’s group (Purdue University), about his research and hearing his overview of the field of AMO physics.
Atomic and molecular physics
Showing that strong-field physics can be simulated using an optical waveguide.
A new method to generate complex light beams from integrated-optics circuits is theoretically investigated in a new paper by Andrea Crespi and Francesca Bragheri
A new way of simulating lattice spin models using ultracold Rydberg atoms

British Science Week starts on Monday, running from the 10th to the 19th of March. Organised by the British Science Association, British Science Week celebrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics across the UK with events all over the country. Here at JPhys+, we thought this would be a great excuse to highlight a selection of some of the great research produced by our authors based in the UK.
Protocol for rotation sensing with trapped ions provides blueprint for big sensitivity boost in a small package.

Introducing our ‘Highlights of 2016’ collection
Professor Bryce Gadway is the head of the Gadway Lab at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Gadway and his group perform experiments on ultracold atomic quantum gases, in particular relating to quantum simulation. He recently published a Topical Review in JPhysB on Strongly interacting ultracold polar molecules, and we took some time to talk to him about his research and the field of AMO physics.

Photoionization of many-electron atoms is of prime importance in controlled nuclear fusion.
This week’s Image of the Week comes from JPhysB‘s Special Issue on Addressing Quantum Many-body Problems with Cold Atoms and Molecules. In their contribution to the issue, Martin Kiffner et al perform calculations of autoionization rates for two rubidium Rydberg… Read More ›
Professor Igor Bray is the head of Physics, Astronomy and Medical Radiation Science at Curtin University. His research focuses on atomic collision theory, and he codeveloped the Convergent Close-Coupling Theory, which is important for unifying the theoretical treatment of electron-atom… Read More ›
