On Monday, Simon held his defense for his PhD thesis and is now officially a Doctor of Philosophy.
He will carry out his research as a post-doctoral fellow in the group of Ronald Hanson at Qutech in Delft.
Congratulations and good luck!
In our Erbium experiment, we have created the first two component dipolar Fermi gas with tunable interactions. This paves the way to studies of BEC-BCS physics in presence of an unprecedented few-body scattering scenario, including anisotropic long-range dipolar interactions and anisotropic short-range interactions.
Now on New Journal of Physics
In collaboration with our theory colleagues from Serbia (Antun Balaž, Vladimir Veljic), Germany (Axel Pelster) and Brazil (Aristeu R. P. Lima), we have investigated the ground-state properties of dipolar Fermi gases, extending the current understanding to the case of arbitrary dipole orientation and trapping geometries.
Claudia Politi, a PhD student in the RARE Lab, has won the first prize for best poster at ICAP 2018 in Barcelona.
More than 600 posters were presented during ICAP 2018. The prizes were decided by the Poster Awards Commission of ICAP 2018 presided by Prof. Fritz Haake.
We have created for the first time a dipolar quantum mixture by combining two highly
magnetic atomic species, Erbium and Dysprosium. The experiment has been conducted in the RARE Lab and we observe simultaneous quantum degeneracy of 5 Bose-Bose mixture and a Bose-Fermi one.
Maximilian Sohmen, , a PhD student in the RARE Lab, has won the prize for best poster of YAO2018. Congratulations!
The Young Atom Opticians (YAO) conference is a yearly meeting, organized by and for PhD candidates in the field of atomic, molecular and optical physics. This year it took place in Glasgow (http://yao2018.phys.strath.ac.uk/).
