Welcome to our website! We are a research group at Caltech and part of the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM).
Our group conducts experimental and theoretical research in quantum science. This includes experiments with individually controlled alkaline earth atoms targeting novel approaches for quantum simulation, quantum information, and quantum-enhanced metrology as well as theory work in quantum many-body physics, applications of machine learning, and proposals for new quantum science and AMO platforms.
News and Announcements:
We have an open postdoc position, and there are postdoc fellowships available at Caltech this fall with deadlines Nov 7 and Nov 30! Potential applicants are encouraged to reach out.
We are looking for new grad students. Prospective and incoming students are encouraged to reach out.
Oct 2018: Our paper on trapping and imaging of individual alkaline earth atoms in tweezers is on arXiv. Congrats to the team for the great work!
Oct 2018: Manuel receives an Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Program award
July 2018: Manuel receives a prestigious NSF CAREER award. Coincidentally, two other former Bloch group members, now in California, win an NSF CAREER award at the same time: Congrats to Monika and Julio!
New course series 'Ph137ab Atoms and Photons': Nick Hutzler and Manuel are implementing a new course series starting this Fall. This is a two term series: The first part will be be taught be Nick and the second part will be taught be Manuel.
