Brian Odom


PhD, Harvard University, 2005

Professor Odom’s group works with atoms and molecules trapped in inert cryogenic crystals.  The ultimate goal is to use these systems for searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, including dark matter and time-reversal symmetry violation. They can also be used in quantum sensing applications. Professor Odom is a member of the Center for Fundamental Physics at Low Energy (CFP).
