Professor, Department of Physics & Astronomy
Jorgensen Hall
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
The Batelaan lab studies the fundamental interaction between light, electrons and atoms. Our interests focus on the foundations of quantum mechanics and electromagnetic interactions. These studies include theoretical analysis, simulation using supercomputing (HCC and XSEDE), and a strong emphasis on experiment.
