Ilya Arakelyan

Research Scholar

Riddick Hall 208


Dr. Arakelyan received his PhD in Physics in 2010 from the University of Maryland at College Park. Since then he is working at the AMO Physics Laboratory of Dr. John Thomas.

Research Description

His current research project focuses on studies of pairing mechanisms in strongly interacting quasi-two-dimensional two-component Fermi gases of 6Li atoms.
