Laboratory of Quantum Molecular Systems

We are an interdisciplinary group of theoretical chemists and physicists working on the intersection of theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics and quantum chemistry. We are primary interested in engineering novel controllable quantum molecular systems for both fundamental research and upcoming quantum technologies.
Research topics investigated in our group include:
  • Cold hybrid ion-neutral systems.
  • Formation, dynamics, and control of ultracold molecules.
  • Ultracold controlled collisions and chemical reactions.
  • Magnetically tunable Feshbach resonances in ultracold gases.
  • Quantum dynamics and simulations with quantum few-body systems.
  • Matter-light interactions and photochemistry.
We use and develop state-of-the-art ab initio electronic structure methods of quantum chemistry as well as computational approaches of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. We are also very open to and enjoy close collaborations with experimental groups.
