The Doctoral Programme (Doktoratskolleg) Atoms, Light, and Molecules, DK-ALM, is a collaborative programme that provides a research and training environment for excellent national and international students. It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and started in January 2016.
Now in PRX! We show that for ultracold magnetic lanthanide atoms (Er and Dy) chaotic scattering emerges due to a combination of anisotropic interaction potentials and Zeeman coupling under an external magnetic field. The scattering is studied in a collaborative experimental and theoretical effort, involving our group, the Stuttgart Dy Group led by T. Pfau and the theory colleagues S. Kotochigova and E. Tiesinga in the USA. [more]
Now in PRL! We created a novel type of dipolar system made of two ultracold bosonic dipolar atoms bounded into a molecules. This work is the result of a combined experimental and theoretical effort between our group, the cold collisions group at LAC in France, and the theory group at Temple University (USA). [more]
