Introducing our ‘Highlights of 2016’ collection
“This field of research is…like a terribly fun puzzle” – an interview with Professor Bryce Gadway
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.
Jyrki Piilo: quantum memory and quantum systems
We chat with Dr Jyrki Piilo about his work, his advice for a younger generation of scientists and reggae.
Interview with Dr Michael Hall on his career and quantum mechanics
‘I have always been keen to understand how the world works at a fundamental level, and consequently have been banging my head for many years against the wall of quantum mechanics, trying to understand what it all means.’
Interview with Teiko Heinosaari: A Quantum Unconference
Teiko Heinosaari is currently a researcher at the Turku Centre for Quantum Physics, University of Turku, Finland. He was recently involved in the organisation of a Quantum ‘Unconference’. Find out what an Unconference is and read about his highlights.

To be able to control chemical reactions on a quantum level holds huge potential for redesigning chemical synthesis and a host of other applications. An established way of doing this is through the use of laser pulses interacting with molecules. … Read More ›
