Professor Rempe conducts experiments in the research fields of atom interferometry, Bose-Einstein condensation, cavity quantum electrodynamics, quantum information processing, and, most recently, cold dipolar molecules.Professor Scully works in the area of theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical physics. His current interests include quantum coherence, Bose Einstein condensation, quantum informatics, and foundations of quantum mechanics.
