2011 Atomtronics MURI Postdoctoral and Student Researchers Day

2010 Atomtronics MURI Postdoctoral and Student Researchers Day, Joint Quantum Institute
October 12, 2011

Ian Spileman (JQI/NIST)

United States


The Atomtronics Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) is a program awarded by the U.S. Army Research Office. The research focuses on the search for alternative modalities to electronics, in which atoms replace electrons as the vehicles of action and information. This October, the program will sponsor a postdoc and student research day. This is an opportunity for young researchers to learn about the combined projects partially supported by the Atomtronics MURI. It will take place following the MURI review, held at the Joint Quantum Institute.
