Atoms in Tweezers
In the T-REQS lab we have now loaded atoms in our optical tweezers.
The Trento-Innsbruck Quantum Information Tour will take place from the 27th of February to the 2nd of March in Trento and Innsbruck.
Vortices in a dysprosium gas
By stirring the magnetic field which polarizes the atoms in a dysprosium condensate, we were able to generate vortices–tiny quantum tornadoes–in a dipolar gas for the first time!
By letting an erbium quantum droplet fall under gravity through an optical lattice, it is possible to understand the inter-atomic interactions and quantum fluctuations through variations of the Bloch oscillation.
