Our research group focusses on using cold, neutral atoms for quantum optical and quantum information science. We have three different projects:
- In the Strong Interactions in hollow core Fibers project, we exploit the specific properties of cold atoms inside hollow core fibers to study long distance atom guiding and strong light-matter interaction.
- The second project will deal with light propagation in dipolar media. Here, we want to study the interplay between light-induced and magnetic dipole-dipole interactions in dense cold samples from dysprosium atoms.
- Within the quantum gases in microgravity (QUANTUS) projects, we are working towards spaceborne precision tests of Einstein's equivalence principle. In this context, new technological challenges have to be met - our group is mainly involved in developing novel technologies for laser light distribution and switching.
We offer plenty of exciting topics for Bachelor's, Master's or PhD theses. If you are interested in joining the group, please do not hesitate to contact us.
