Adam Kaufman received his undergraduate degree at Amherst College and is just finishing up his Ph.D. in physics at JILA and the University of Colorado at Boulder. His Ph.D. work focused on quantum control of single atoms in optical tweezers using laser-cooling techniques, which enabled the observation of an atomic analog to the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect.


Electron Model Captured by Atom Pair

A simple system consisting of a pair of atoms in a two-site “minicrystal” is able to reproduce the physics of a widely used model of electrons in a solid. Read More »
