$5 Million Award

Photonics Spectra
Dec 2009
A team led by Rice University of Houston has won a three-year grant from the Army Research Office, with funding from DARPA. The group, representing seven universities, will build a simulator to investigate high-temperature superconductivity using ultracold atoms in an optical lattice created with lasers. The $5 million grant is the second phase of funding for this project.

GLOSSARY
optical lattice
A periodic structure formed by intersecting or superimposed laser beams. These beams can trap atoms in low-potential regions, forming a pattern of atoms resembling the structure of a crystal.
