As a powerful tool, optical lattice makes it possible to study various areas of physics with cold atoms, such as modeling condensed matter systems, precision measurement, and quantum information. In this lecture I will talk about the basic concepts of optical lattices, the state-of-the-art techniques that people use to manipulate and probe atoms inside an optical lattice, and versatile applications exploring new and exciting physics. 

(The JQI summer school is for students and postdocs, but others are welcome to join for refreshments afterwards; Discussion with pizza and refreshments at 5:00pm)
