Malcolm Boshier is the Scientific Director of the Quantum Institute at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and part of a team attempting to harness atoms provided by a Bose-Einstein condensate to build a waveguide atom interferometer. Such a device would be extremely sensitive to any interaction that affects the energies of atoms and could be miniaturized to dimensions of just a few millimeters, which might make possible a new generation of ultra-sensitive miniature sensors. He was recently recruited to the Physics Division from The University of Sussex, U.K.
