Xiao Chai [Email]

I started to work at Raman Lab since Fall 2017. I received my B.S. degree in physics at Fudan University. Previously I was focusing on the study of resonant dipole-dipole interaction between cold atoms in laser fields. I also did some fabrication using photolithography. Now my research interests lie in AMO physics in general. As a kick-off, I am using the delayed self-heterodyne method to help diagnose the linewidth of lasers serving in the group. Outside of the lab, I enjoy guitar, ping pong, and anime.

Alex Crawford [Email]

I graduated with my B.S. in Physics from California Polytechnic State University SLO in 2018, where my thesis focused on the assembly of an injection locked laser system and the characterization of its lock efficiency. I joined the Raman Lab in Fall 2019 to continue working with cold neutral atom traps and contribute to micro-scaling this technology for a wide range of applications. Prior to this I had done research in different areas of applied optics such as RF detection of neutrinos, laser safety system development using live aircraft location data, and chiral molecular spectroscopy. Outside of lab I enjoy learning different styles of dance and knitting.

Di Lao [Email]

I am a graduate student in the school of physics. I received my B.S. degree in Physics from SJTU in 2016 and I joined Dr. Raman’s lab in August 2017. My scientific interest lies in the study of interaction between laser and quantum system. I worked on numerical simulation of interaction between ultrafast laser and atoms and experimental quantum information before. Currently I am working on non-equilibrium phenomena in antiferromagnetic spinor  BEC.

Chao Li [Email]

I got my B.S. degree in physics from JLU, China in 2016. I undertook an academic internship at NTU, Singapore focusing on superhard materials in Summer 2014. I was a visiting student at Georgia Tech in Spring 2015. My research interests shifted from condensed matter towards atom optics after joining Raman Lab in Spring 2017. Now, I am working on atom interferometry and excited to develop the next generation of precision inertial sensing technology.

Sara Sloman [Email]

I graduated with bachelor’s degrees in astrophysics and mathematics from Agnes Scott College in the spring of 2020 and joined the Raman lab in the spring semester 2021. Previously, my research has focused on radio interferometry and high mass star formation. My current research interests have shifted to AMO physics, specifically in BEC. In my spare time I like to read, hike, and bake.

Bochao Wei [Email]

I graduated with a B.S. degree in Physics at Nanjing University in 2017. I was focusing on using ultrafast lasers to probe the magneto-optic effect in perovskite. My interest gradually shifted to AMO and joined this great lab group in Fall 2017.  I am focusing on using our chip-scale atomic beams to achieve novel quantum applications including strong single atom-photon interaction using microresonators. I love hiking, video games, and watching movies.

Linzhao Zhuo
I graduated in 2020 from Miami University with one of the degrees in Physics, and I joined Professor Raman’s lab at Georgia Tech in Spring 2021 to continuing working on AMO physics. Outside the lab, I like enjoying my life.

Jacob Williamson

I graduated in 2017 from Ohio University with a B.S. in Astrophysics and Applied Mathematics with Honors in Physics.  My undergraduate research was with Dr. Ryan Chornock on supernovae and published in an undergraduate thesis.  I joined Dr. Raman’s lab in May 2022 to start work on fiber-based microcavities after a short stint in theoretical planetary dynamics and another stint in ultrafast spectroscopy on condensed matter systems.  Outside of the lab, I enjoy rock climbing, playing video games, learning Na’vi, playing guitar, chilling with my cats and wife, and learning about whatever has caught my attention that day!
