About the Holland Group

The Holland theory group's research is on properties of quantum gases with a focus on transport in optical lattices and on strongly interacting superfluids. The group is also working on superradiant cavity QED with group-II elements to develop a millihertz linewidth laser that would have a coherence length stretching from the earth to the sun. In addition, the group collaborates with experimentalists at JILA to develop optomechanical systems for transducing signals between optical and microwave frequencies.
