Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the ultracold atomic and molecular physics group in the Department of Physics and the James Franck Institute, at the University of Chicago. Here you will find a new and active research team exploring the quantum world at the lowest temperatures scientists can achieve, nearly a billionth of a degree Kelvin above absolute zero. Few sample images are shown in our Ultracold gallery. If you are interested in our research program or have any questions, please drop me a line, cchin @
