Producing and controlling ultracold molecules
Dr. Hannah Williams (Department of Physics, Imperial College, London, UK)

From studies of fundamental physics to quantum technologies the production of ultracold molecules will have a huge impact across a range of applications. For many years laser cooling, an invaluable tool in cold atomic physics, was considered too impractical for application to molecules. However, laser cooling has recently been demonstrated for a few molecular species. I will present my work with ultracold calcium fluoride. This talk will cover laser cooling and magneto-optical trapping of molecules and recent results demonstrating deep cooling and coherent quantum state control.
