The Will Lab at Columbia University investigates quantum systems of ultracold atoms and molecules, focuses on fundamental questions in the field and contributes to the development of modern quantum technologies. Under the leadership of Sebastian Will, the lab developed a partnership with nonprofit STEMteachersNYC entitled “Laser Cooling: Quantum Physics Applications for High School Students” in an effort to give high school teachers the tools to share quantum physics with their students. In collaboration with Fernand Brunschwig at STEMteachersNYC, Will and his graduate students distill their work in experimental physics to a few simple ideas that the teachers attending the workshops can understand, which they can then share with their students to help them understand quantum physics and its applications for atomic clocks, super-fast computers, and more.
