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



Theoretical studies of the cold atoms at Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb  have started in 2005. with the focus on the nonequilibrium dynamics of one-dimensional Bose gases.

Experimental studies are taking place at Institute of Physics, Zagreb where the first operating magneto-optical trap in south-eastern Europe was realized in 2011. The research is focused on the interaction of the femtosecond pulses with cold rubidium atoms.


Joint activities of theoretical and experimental groups have started recently with the main goal to strengthen and expand the cold atoms research in Croatia.
