Mike Gunn’s research tries to determine the patterns that particles form at low temperatures (where quantum mechanics dominates), which might be patterns in space (a simple example would be a crystal lattice) but usually have a pattern in a more exotic sense (in their velocities or correlations between pairs of the particles). He is currently exploring several theoretical problems concerning the rapid experimental developments in ultra cold quantum gases.

Professor Gunn’s research interests include:

Ultra cold atoms
Anomalous hydrodynamics
Molecules in optical lattices
Uncondensed and correlated states
Atoms with attractive interactions
