The Ultramodern Molecule Factory: I. Doublons

The old JILA molecule factory (built in 2002) produced the world’s first ultracold polar molecules [potassium-rubidium (KRb)] in 2008....

A Thousand Splendid Pairs

JILA’s cold molecule collaboration (Jin and Ye Groups, with theory support from the Rey Group) recently made a breakthrough in their...

Metamorphosis

A grand challenge of ultracold physics is figuring out how fermions become bosons. This is an important question because the tiniest...

Jin Group Research

Our research focuses on ultracold gases of atoms and molecules. Our experiments use laser cooling, magnetic trapping, and evaporative cooling to reach temperatures below one microKelvin, where quantum statistics dominate the behavior of the atoms or molecules. We study quantum gases of fermions, as well as bosons, and explore a variety of phenomena such as Bose-Einstein condensation, Cooper pairing of fermions, superfluidity, and spin models realized with ultracold polar molecules.
