About Waseem S. Bakr's Work

Bakr’s lab studies atomic and molecular gases cooled to a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero. His group uses optical microscopy to probe these strongly-interacting systems at the atomic level. Their research illuminates the behavior of electrons in a wide range of materials including superconductors and quantum magnets.
