Michael V. DePalatis¶
I am a physics graduate student at Georgia Tech working in Prof. Mike Chapman’s lab. My current work involves trapping barium ions for the purpose of producing molecular ions which can ultimately be used for extending well-developed laser cooling techniques to molecules for precision spectroscopy, quantum computing, or tests of fundamental physics. Previous work involved trapping thorium ions in a collaborative effort with the lab of Prof. Alex Kuzmich to find an unusually low lying nuclear isomer in 229Th which is accessible to tabletop lasers. You can see more details here.
