Murray Holland Portrait
Professor • Fellow - JILA

Office: JILA S366

Research Interest:

The Holland theory group's research is on properties of quantum gases with a focus on transport in optical lattices and on strongly interacting superfluids. The group is also working on superradiant cavity QED with group-II elements to develop a mHz linewidth "laser."
