Welcome to Loh lab @ CQT

We are setting up a new molecule experiment at the Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore! We are interested in using ultracold molecules as quantum building blocks to simulate advanced materials.

Understanding our research focus

Compared to atoms, molecules possess rich internal structure and long-range anisotropic interactions.

Realizing molecular building blocks in the quantum regime will open the door to simulating interesting quantum materials, exploring cold controlled chemistry, quantum information processing, and fundamental physics.

Molecules typically lack closed cycling transitions, so it is difficult to apply conventional atomic physics techniques like laser cooling to cool and control molecules.

Recent breakthroughs in atomic physics research have enabled the creation of cold and ultracold molecules. Our lab is developing new methods to cool and control molecules.

Interested?

Come join our team! We are actively seeking talented postdocs, PhD students, and undergraduates. Together, let’s push this exciting new frontier of quantum physics!
