Laboratory of Cold Ions and Atoms

LIAF stands for Laboratorio de Iones y Átomos Fríos (Laboratory of Cold Ions and Atoms).

At LIAF we develop experiments on atomic physics at the quantum level. We are interested in exploring fundamental as well as applied research with cold-coherent matter. Our current research lines include:

  • Light-mater interaction with structured beams
  • Quantum thermodynamics with ion chains
  • Optical-Atomic Clocks
  • Optical Nano-Cryostats
