This is the research group page of the Laser-Cooled Atoms Group at Creighton University led by Dr. Jonathan Wrubel. Our group is building an experiment to probe quantum physics in a Bose-Einstein condensate of 41K (potassium-41).  This facinating state of matter is made by using lasers to cool gas atoms down to temperature below a millionth of a degree above absolute zero.  This novel state allows us to study quantum magnetism.
