Education

Our program will provide the opportunities for training of 8 graduate students and 4 post-doctoral fellows on average per year in one of the most active areas of modern physics. This number amounts to a total of 15 graduate students and 8 post-doctoral fellows in the planned research period of five years. They will learn most developed laser and vacuum technology involving the quantum gas experiments, as well as important physical concepts. As a joint effort, our program will develop atomic physics course for graduate students covering a broad range of up-to-date subjects, taking advantage of the diverse backgrounds of the participants. Also, we will provide various seminars and workshop to introduce the quantum gas experiments to the physics community in Korea. The current cold atom experiment expands its realm crossing the boundaries into many other sub-fields such as many-body physics, quantum optics and quantum chaos. We will look for common interests with other physics subfields, aiming at interdisciplinary research activities.
