Welcome to the home page of the Ultra-cold Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO) Physics Laboratory at the College of William and Mary.

Recent news

   The laboratory investigates physical phenomena in cold and ultra-cold matter. We focus our research on:

Ultra-cold quantum gases .

-  Precision measurements of fundamental interactions .

- Precision interferometry for the inertial sensing of forces, accelerations, rotations, and gradients.
