Primary research focus centers on the development of practical cold and ultracold atom systems. Ongoing theoretical and experimental research in atomtronics seeks to develop chip-based ultracold atom devices and circuits that are analogous to electronic devices and circuits. Such ultracold analogs, referred to atomtronic devices and circuits, provide a means for generating, manipulating, and detecting quantum signals in a manner analogous to classical electronic systems, with the additional character associated with quantum coherence. Current experiments aim to demonstrate an atomtronic transistor, and subsequently simple atomtronic circuits.
