We are engaged in research on

  • Quantum phenomena with bio/molecules & nanoparticles 
  • Quantum decoherence & the limits of quantum linearity
  • Matter-wave technologies: novel beam splitters & interferometer schemes  
  • Quantum-enhanced molecule metrology: assessing electro-magnetic & optical properties
  • Cavity cooling and rotational optomechanics of dielectric nanospheres and nanorods  
  • Molecular beam methods: to prepare, cool & detect neutral biomolecular beams
  • Quantum tools for research and applications in chemistry and biology
