    Welcome to our lab for ultracold strontium atoms and precision measurements. We are interested in combining the powers of ultracold atoms and precision measurements to study quantum manybody physics. Specifically, our first experiment will choose atomic strontium (Sr) that is very unique because it simultaneously possesses the capability to reach ultracold temperatures and an ultra-narrow clock transition that is ideal for performing precision spectroscopy with. We will cool Sr atoms into quantum degeneracy (at nanoKelvin temperatures), manipulate them with precision tools like high-spatial-resolution microscopy and high-resolution laser spectroscopy to create interesting quantum states, and precisely measure these quantum states with the same tools that are used to create them. Ultracold strontium holds promise for realizing novel quantum states in strongly correlated systems as well as exotic interacting topological materials.
