- Realization of a molecular Bose-EInstein condensate created from an ultracold gas of fermionic atoms.
- Bose-Einstein condensates in three-dimensional optical lattices.
- Quantum Phase transition from a superfluid to a Mott insulator in a ultracold gas of atoms.
- Collapse and revival of the matter wave field of a Bose-Einstein condensate.
- Spin elective transport in optical lattices: Creation of large scale entanglement of atoms in optical lattices via cold coherent collisions.
