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.
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.
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.
