Dr. Michael Bromley

Researcher, Senior Lecturer in Physics

Michael was born in Brisbane and raised in Darwin. He did a BSc at the (now) Charles Darwin University, honours down at the University of Melbourne, and a PhD also at Charles Darwin University for which he was awarded the Australian Institute of Physics' Bragg Gold Medal. He then postdoc'd at Kansas State University (USA) before joining the faculty at San Diego State University (USA) for 6 years. He was awarded a 2010 ARC Future Fellowship to move my computational physics research to UQ to continue my explorations on the quantum mechanics of atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) systems.


Interferometric measurements with matter waves are established techniques for sensitive gravimetry, rotation sensing, and measurement of surface interactions, but compact interferometers will require techniques based on trapped geometries.
