Welcome to Loh Lab @ CQT

Our "molecular legos" lab is actively searching for an electronics engineer. Please see details under "opportunities".

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.

We are hiring!

Our lab is actively searching for an electronics engineer to work on reconfigurable tweezer arrays for quantum simulation. Please see the "opportunities" page for details.
