Dani held his defense for his PhD thesis and is now officially a Doctor of Philosophy. He will continue to carry out his research as a post-doctoral fellow beginning of next year in the group of David Norris at the ETH. Congratulations and good luck!
On July 23th, the Erbium Team was hiking to the Meissner Haus near Innsbruck to get together for a discussion day.
Since May 15th 2020, Lauriane has joined the Editorial Board of New Journal of Physics (NJP). NJP is a scientific journal publishing important new research with significance across a broad readership.
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 Physics magazine of the American Physical Society (APS) has named the discovery of supersolidity in ultracold quantum gases as one of the top ten highlights of 2019. The research group led by Francesca Ferlaino has for the first time obtained evidence of supersolidity in erbium and dysprosium gases. Similar experiments were conducted in Pisa and Stuttgart.
