Rice Team Reports Events

Randy Hulet reports that his team has gained and lost in recent personnel changes. They were joined by a new post-doc, Dr. Marin Pichler. Marin's Ph.D. studies at the University of Connecticut were on the topic of photoassociation of ultracold atoms. As well, Jordan Gerton defended his Ph.D. thesis and is now a post-doc at Caltech, where he is working on biophysics.

Hulet presented two invited talks last summer at the Nordic School on Atomic Quantum Gases and Matter Wave Optics, in Turku, Finland. The first was titled "Bose-Einstein Condensation of Attracting Atoms - The Atomic Supernova", while the second was "Bose-Einstein Condensation and the Scattering Length."
