AMP Facilities


The Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (ITAMP) was established in 1988 to attract and encourage talented graduate students to enter this field of research, which emphasizes theoretical study of fundamental questions in atomic and molecular physics. ITAMP hosts many visitors, both long- and short-term, and conducts numerous conferences and workshops annually.
