Dr. Chapman’s laboratory investigates fundamental topics in contemporary quantum mechanics by manipulating the quantum behavior of single atoms and photons. This research employs lasers to confine and cool atoms to micro-Kelvin temperatures inside a vacuum chamber. These samples then provide a starting point for quantum studies including fundamental atom-photon interactions and atom optics and interferometry involving the manipulation of the atomic de Broglie wave. This research employs state-of-the-art laser and optical technologies, as well as high-speed electronics and vacuum technology.
