We are the University of St Andrews Cold Atoms group, part of the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance.  Our research is focused on the utilization of computer generated holograms to generate novel optical traps for ultracold atoms.

  • We demonstrate simultaneous control of both the phase and amplitude of light using a conjugate gradient minimisation-based hologram calculation technique and a single phase-only spatial light modulator (SLM). Opt. Express 25 11692-11700 (2017)
