Hutzler Lab @ Caltech


We are a brand new lab at Caltech that uses lasers to control atoms and molecules for table-top experiments in fundamental nuclear and particle physics, by using and developing techniques that also have applications to quantum information, computation, and many-body systems.  There are openings for research positions and internships at all levels - undergraduate, masters, graduate, and post-doc.

If you want to know about (or already know about!) any of the following, then we definitely have something for you to work on, and you should get in touch:
  • Lasers and optics
  • Cryogenics
  • Vacuum
  • Mechanical design and fabrication
  • Laser cooling and trapping
  • Gas kinetics and dynamics
  • Electronics
  • Quantum manipulation of atoms and molecules
  • Automation and control
  • Creation of exotic atoms and molecules in the gas-phase 
  • Coffee
  • Atomic and molecular structure
  • Spectroscopy
  • Electromagnetic fields
  • Calculations and modeling

Thanks to the Heising-Simons Foundation for supporting our research into fundamental nuclear symmetry violation!

Lab Open House - Monday, February 12, 1-4 pm
Please come by the first floor of Downs/Lauritsen and see the new, clean, and organized lab space before we trash it.
