On July 23th, the Erbium Team was hiking to the Meissner Haus near Innsbruck to get together for a discussion day.
Beginning in July, Russell joined the University of Innsbruck as an Assistant Professor. He is building a theory group within the Department of Experimental Physics, with a focus on ultracold quantum gases, most notably bringing his expertise on dipolar Bose-Einstein condensates. He is looking forward to working in Innsbruck and taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings.
Since May 15th 2020, Lauriane has joined the Editorial Board of New Journal of Physics (NJP). NJP is a scientific journal publishing important new research with significance across a broad readership.
In joint theoretical and experimental work with our theory colleagues A.-M. Rey (JILA) and B. Zhu (ITAMP) we investigate dipolar induced magnetization-conserving spin exchange dynamics with fermionic Er in a 3D optical lattice. Our work is now published in Physical Review Research.
