Lundblad lab is an experimental atomic physics research facility at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, USA. We focus on the physics of matter cooled to just barely above absolute zero, specifically the phenomena associated with Bose-Einstein condensation in shell-like traps and in rf-dressed optical lattices.

Congratulations to Dan Paseltiner '16, who has successfully defended his Honors thesis: "Progress towards Bose-Einstein condensation on an atom chip as a functional testbed for experiments aboard the orbital NASA Cold Atom Laboratory". After graduation, Dan will be SURFing at NIST Gaithersburg in the Physical Measurement Laboratory with Ian Spielman's ultracold atomic physics group.
