Paul Hamilton is an Assistant Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.  He received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 2010 for work on an experiment using diatomic molecules to search for an electric dipole moment of the electron. He then conducted postdoctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley, using atom interferometry to test fundamental physics. Since 2015, he has been at UCLA, where his group is developing new types of interferometers for atoms and ions in order to do tabletop searches for physics beyond the standard model of particle physics.


A Diatomic Molecule is One Atom too Few

The successful laser cooling of a triatomic molecule paves the way towards the study of ultracold polyatomic molecules. Read More »
