Atomic, Molecular & Optical

The University of Michigan is recognized as one of the leading institutions in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO) Physics research. Over the past century, physics faculty have made pioneering contributions to AMO science, including:

Many of our AMO Physics graduates have successfully obtained positions at major research universities, four-year colleges, national laboratories, and industry.

Currently, our AMO program consists of more than a dozen research groups who explore a broad range of topics in quantum information science, precision measurements, biophysics, and ultrafast optical science. Graduate and undergraduate students play key roles in these cutting-edge activities, which are carried out in state-of-the-art facilities and laboratories.
