Ultracold Polar Molecules
We plan to create dense ensembles of trapped ground-state polar molecules at ultracold temperatures. Collision dynamics inside the trap will be investigated to determine the possibility of evaporatively cooling the molecules further to form a molecular Bose-Einstein Condensate. Sympathetic cooling with strontium will also be investigated.
