Van Druten group

Group photo minitrap atomchip

Welcome to the home page of our group,
part of the Quantum Gases - Atom Optics group,
within the Van der Waals Zeeman Institute,
in the Faculty of Science
of the University of Amsterdam


We have recently observed BEC in our experiment. Here is more information.

Research interests

Our research focuses on ultracold gases trapped in close proximity to current-carrying wires (so-called atom chips). Our main interest is in studying low-dimensional systems, in particular the 1D Bose gas in a waveguide. Our main experiment is called CELSIUS.
