AT’s Short Profile


Arno Trautmann was born on 3rd May 1987 in Bad Kreuznach, Germany. He studied physics in Kaiserslautern, Mainz, and Heidelberg (Germany), where he got his Diploma degree in 2011. Continuing in Heidelberg, he started his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Markus Oberthaler at the Kirchhoff-Institute for Physics, working with ultracold sodium-lithium mixtures. In this time, he and his colleagues investigated the Feshbach spectrum of the intra- and interspecies scattering, the coherence in external degrees of freedom of fermions immersed in a bosonic bath, as well as the energy shift of an impurity in a tightly confined geometry. Additional experiments were conducted in the spin dynamics of sodium and both mixture systems.

After receiving his doctorate in 2016, he travelled a few month through south-east asia to recharge, before he joined the group of Prof. Francesca Ferlaino in November as a post-doctoral fellow at the new RARE
