Welcome to the Cheuk Lab!

We are a new experimental group in atomic/molecular/optical (AMO) physics in the Physics Department at Princeton, and part of the Princeton Quantum Initiative. Our research focuses on atomic and molecular systems ultracold temperatures (uK to mK), and exploring applications in quantum science with these systems.

We are starting a new experiment with optically trapped ultracold molecules, whose rich internal structure of molecules offer new features such as long-range electric dipolar interactions, and nearly degenerate quantum states. These features lead to new possibilities in quantum simulation of condensed matter models and also in quantum information. These include simulation of lattice spin models and making qubits out of single molecules.

We are always on the lookout for talented students and postdocs. If you are excited about joining our experimental effort, please contact Lawrence at lcheuk@princeton.edu.
