Research activities in the field of cold atoms in Croatia take place at the Department of Physics, University of Zagreb and the Institute of Physics in Zagreb.

Theoretical studies on cold atoms at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb have started in 2005. Today they are exploring interacting ultracold atomic gases in synthetic magnetic fields and searching for the anyon signatures. You can find more about theoretical studies at the project pages of prof. H. Buljan.

Experimental studies are taking place at the Institute of Physics, Zagreb where the first operating magneto-optical trap in south-eastern Europe was realized in 2011. The research is focused on exploring the interaction of femtosecond pulses with cold rubidium atoms. On this page you can find out more about our experimental research.
