Ana Maria Rey received her Ph.D. from the University of Maryland at College Park and NIST-Gaithersburg in 2004. She is currently a JILA fellow and a research associate professor in the physics department at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Rey’s research is on how to control and manipulate ultracold atoms, molecules, and trapped ions for use as quantum simulators of solid-state materials and for entanglement generation, quantum information, and precision measurements.


Observing the Great Spin and Orbital Swap

The experimental observation of spin-orbital exchange interactions in ultracold atoms opens a window for the exploration of poorly understood magnetic behaviors. Read More »
