Welcome to the Cornish Labs

Welcome to the Cornish Labs website! We study ultracold atoms and molecules at Durham University in the Quantum Light and Matter Section of the Physics Department

We use laser cooling to create samples of gases at micro-kelvin temperatures, which we then associate into molecules through control over the inter-atomic state via magnetic fields, lasers and microwaves. You can find an overview of our research goals here.

We are looking for passionate new PhD students, Postdocs, and Master students to join the team (more info) !
