A new method of trapping and cooling atoms has been realized by a team of CAIQuE researchers in Wes Campbell's group at UCLA. Andrew Jayich, Xueping Long, and Campbell used a pulsed laser known as a frequency comb to cool 10 million rubidium atoms to about 60 microkelvin. The team has developed a theoretical model that demonstrates that the method can also be used to cool species important to biology and astronomy such as atomic hydrogen, antihydrogen, carbon, oxygen and nitrogen.

University of California President Janet Napolitano today (Dec. 10) announced the first recipients of the President’s Research Catalyst Awards, chosen from a pool of almost 200 proposals. The projects involve multi-campus, multi-disciplinary efforts, incorporating research, teaching and learning for undergraduate and graduate students. The awards are designed to stimulate UC research in areas that could benefit California and the world.
