We report on the latest experimental achievements with ultracold atoms in the Quantum Research group at UKZN. As previously reported, we have cooled a dilute gas of Rubidium atoms to mikroKelvins in the first Magneto Optical Trap in Africa. Currently we are implementing methods for better diagnostics as well as transfer to of cold atoms between different vacuum chambers. Some of the long term goals of Quantum Information processing with Ultracold Atoms will also be mentioned.
