Welcome!

 

The Hulet group investigates atoms at temperatures as low as a few nano-Kelvin. At such low temperatures, the strange and fascinating effects of quantum mechanics dominate, greatly altering normal atomic behavior. Hulet and his group have used laser cooling and atom trapping techniques to explore this exotic regime of matter, investigating ultracold atom collisions, Bose-Einstein condensation, and pairing of atomic Fermi gases. Our current interest is the realization of fundamental models of condensed matter using ultracold atoms confined by optical lattices (press release) and in the presence of disordered potentials,  as well as the study of few-body physics of bosons with resonant interactions (press release).

These topics are discussed in detail within our pages, and our group publications are available for download. Please feel welcomed to come inside and explore!

On February 28th 2010, results from the Hulet lab have once again been featured as NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day

We have recently moved to the new Brockman Hall for Physics, click on the picture below for more information on this award winning new building.

Endowed Award in Memory of Kevin Strecker

In memory of Kevin Strecker, who earned his Ph.D. from the Rice University Department of Physics and Astronomy in 2004, the Kevin E. Strecker Award has been established in the Department of Physics and Astronomy to recognize the most outstanding Master’s thesis each year. Funds are being raised to endow the award.
