About Wolfgang Ketterle's Work

He leads a research group exploring new forms of matter of ultracold atoms, in particular novel aspects of superfluidity, coherence, magnetic ordering and correlations in many-body systems. The systems he is interested in include Bose-Einstein condensates, strongly interacting Fermi gases, ultracold molecules and atoms in optical lattices.
