Welcome to our Introductory Course on Ultracold Quantum Gases!

Sunday 6th to Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th February 2022

Our Winter school will give a basic introduction into the fascinating research field of cold atoms and ultracold quantum gases, which offers many exciting research opportunities for young researchers.

Twelves lectures given by experts from Innsbruck, Heidelberg, Wien and Trento will cover the basic concepts of laser cooling and trapping, Bose-Einstein condensation, ultracold Fermi gases, ultracold molecules, strongly correlated quantum gases, and optical lattices. In addition, students will be given the opportunity to visit state-of-the-art laboratories at the University of Innsbruck and the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI).

The course is aimed at students finishing their bachelor degree or early in their master program and first year PhD students. Specialized knowledge in the field is not required; students should have a basic knowledge of quantum physics and atomic, molecular, and optical physics at the undergraduate level.

The Winter School will take place twice (see below) in Innsbruck, Austria from Sunday 6th to Saturday 12th February 2022. It is organized by Francesca Ferlaino, Rudolf Grimm, and Hanns-Christoph Nägerl with administrative support from Silvia Bonazza.
