This week quantum physicist Francesca Ferlaino will receive the Antonio Feltrinelli Giovani Prize in physics. This is the first time the prize, valued at 50,000 Euro, will be awarded to young scientists. It recognizes the achievements of Italian scholars under the age of 40 who have achieved results of outstanding originality and international significance.
Prof. Hanns-Christoph Nägerl from the Ultracold group in Innsbruck recieved the prestigeous Wittgenstein award from the FWF. Congratulations to him and his full team!
The last year passed by really quickly and unfortunately Giulia’s and Jan’s time here in Innsbruck is over and they are heading towards new goals. All we can do is saying thank you, for a very nice year and wish you all the best for your future. Needless to say you are always welcome here in IBK.
Ciao-ciao and Tschüss 🙂
From June until August Blair Blakie, Professor at the University of Otago NZ, is visiting our group here in Innsbruck to work with us on various topics of dipolar quantum gases. Regarding his wide-spread knowledge from optical lattices, rotons, droplets, spinor condensates, mixtures,… we are looking forward to a productive time with him!
Welcome to Innsbruck, Blair!
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’.
