This week, Maximilian Sohmen started as a PhD student in the Rare lab. He recieved his masters degree from the university of Heidelberg under supervision of Matthias Weidemüller. For his master thesis, he moved for a full year to Cambrige to join the Group of Zoran Hadzibabic to work on ‘Optical Gray-Molasses Cooling of Potassium-39’.
One of his main projects in the Rare lab will be to design, test and implement a completely new quantum-gas microscope for ultracold erbium and dysprosium atoms.
Welcome Max to innsbruck! 🙂
