Welcome!

The Centre for Cold Matter is devoted to the study of fundamental problems in physics using the techniques of atomic and laser physics. CCM is based at Imperial College London, in the Quantum Optics and Laser Science division of the Physics Department.

Research at CCM focuses on the control and understanding of elementary quantum systems using the techniques of atomic and laser physics.

An overview of the groups activites is can be found below. There are also descriptions of current experiments which may be found on the Reseach section of our website.

Our Group director is Ed Hinds.
