Dr. Thomas Bell

Thomas completed his PhD with the Bose-Einstein Condensate Laboratory at the Univeristy of Queensland in 2020, before commencing a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. His research focussed on engineering spatially controlled optical potentials suitable for dynamically manipulating the movement of a particular family of superfluid, called Bose-Einstein Condensates. He pioneered the density based feedforward method for controlling the spatial density distribution, and provided new foundational insights regarding the trapping limitations of potentials formed using the method of time-averaging. These results support ongoing efforts to develop quantum enhanced metrological devices and continuously replenishing matterwave sources.
