DP’s Short Profile
Daniel Petter was born on 25th of October 1990 in Landeck, close to Innsbruck. After school, he served his civil service in the Austrian Red Cross, before moving on to Innsbruck to study Physics. In his bachelor’s thesis he wrote about the apparatus for creating ultracold quantum gases of erbium atoms, under supervision of Francesca Ferlaino. It was his first time, he got in touch with the field of
ultracold quantum gases. For his master’s thesis he joined Francesca Ferlainos team to work with a digital micromirror device on spatial light modulation.
After graduating in August 2015, he took a few months off, to travel to Asia and relax. In January 2016 he began, completely refreshed, his PhD in the Erbium team.
