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.
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!
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.
Together with an international Consortium of six other research groups Francesca Ferlaino in collaboration with Peter Zoller successfully applied for funding of the project “MAQS” – Magnetic-Atom Quantum Simulator.
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.
We are pleased to announce the launching a novel excellence fellowship program to provide support to external master students willing to join our group for their research project. The call for application for the year 2020 is now open. Application should be submitted until April 15th 2020 for an internship starting, at the latest, end of November 2020.
