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.
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.
