I submitted a simulation paper last week and it is now availeble on arxiv: https://arxiv.org/abs/2207.08663
This project started during the C19-lockdowns in which our labs were closed. We simulated quantum gas microscope data and studied the limitations of single atom imaging. We compared analysis techniques and discovered the best way to retrieve the locations of the atoms in a lattice.
The recently submitted work from my time in Paris got accepted for publication by New Journal of Physics. I am both happy and thankful that it went so fast and smooth from submission to publication. It is a bit technical and practical but it shows the experiment that I worked on really well!
Last month we submitted a paper from my time in Paris describing the experiment I helped to build. “An optical elevator for precise delivery of cold atoms using an acousto-optical deflector” https://arxiv.org/abs/2111.04160
We recently submitted a paper for review from our Caesium experiment: https://arxiv.org/abs/2106.00825 This is gearing up to be a fruitful year with manuscripts from other experiments on Rb, K and simulated atoms also on their way….
I am very happy to report that the last part of my PhD work was accepted for publication in PRA this week. We report on the design of several new geoemetries in which one can trap ultracold atoms with magnetic chips.

After an exciting month living effectively in three cities at the same time I arrived with my belongings in Glasgow. The city welcomed me with a sunny week full of cold atoms, badminton and some whisky!
The fruitful work of a new collaboration between material scientists from Leuven and technicians from the Kavli cleamnroom in Delft resulted in the fabrication of our sub-wavelength magnetic lattices with which we hope to trap atoms at teh University of Amsterdam. Feel free to have a look at the paper!
