After completing the Master’s degree in Heidelberg under the supervision of Prof. Weidemüller in the Li-Cs mixture experiment, Lauritz joined our team in February as a PhD student in the RARE lab. Welcome to Innsbruck, Lauritz!
Simon Baier is honored for his dissertation “Ultracold Dipolar Erbium Atoms: From Scattering Phenomena to Quantum Simulations”, which gives an overview of his research on dipolar quantum phenomena. It documents Simon Baier’s research on the long-range magnetic interaction of ultracold particles, which he studied in the group of Francesca Ferlaino. The scientists use ultracold quantum gases of strongly magnetic erbium atoms as an experimental platform. These particles are trapped in a three-dimensional optical lattice and thus form a quantum simulator for solid state phenomena with long range interactions. With this setup, Simon Baier’s team was able to observe and investigate numerous previously unexplored dipolar phenomena in few and many-body physics. (Credits IQOQI)
With the beginning of the new year, Matt joins our team as Post-Doc in the RARE lab. After completing the Ph.D. at JILA (Colorado, US) under the supervision of James Thompson, he continued as a Post-Doc together with Adam Kaufman always at JILA. Welcome to Innsbruck, Matt!
With the beginning of the new year, Bing joins our team as Post-Doc in the ERBIUM lab. After finishing his PhD in Heidelberg (DE) and Hefei (CN) under the supervision of Prof. Jian-Wei Pan in 2015, he continued as a Post-Doc in Heidelberg. Welcome, Bing!
Sandra Brandstetter, master student in the RARE Lab, has received an academic excellence scholarship of the University of Innsbruck. The scholarship is awarded every year for outstanding academic achievements in the previous academic year.
The Elise-Richter fellowship programme from the FWF is a prestigious and selective programme dedicated to senior female post-docs, helping them to achieve independence and guiding them toward the next step of their academic career and in particular their habilitation.
