Quantum dynamics of atomic and molecular systems
Our group studies atomic and molecular quantum systems with respect to their interactions on different levels of complexity. Of special importance is the application and extension of modern methods for the manipulation and quantum control to many-body quantum systems, in particular using coherent light. The systems under investigation range from highly excited Rydberg atoms over atomic and molecular quantum gases to molecular aggregates. The group develops technologies for trapping and cooling of neutral atoms as well as quantum-state sensitive diagnostics.

|Floquet Hamiltonian engineering of an isolated many-body spin system: paper published in Science!||28.11.2021|
This month, our paper on "Floquet Hamiltonian engineering of an isolated many-body spin system" got published in Science! In this work, by periodically driving an isolated spin system, we changed a naturally given many-body Hamiltonian into a desired target form. Using a sequence of time-periodic microwave pulses, we change the Hamiltonian of our interacting Rydberg-spin system from a Heisenberg XX-model into an effective XYZ-model with tunable symmetry. As a consequence, the magnetization relaxation dynamic of the is drastically modified. The ability to engineering a wide range of Hamiltonians opens vast opportunities for implementing quantum simulation of non-equilibrium dynamics in a single experimental setting.

|Welcome to Tobias and Michael starting their PhD in the Mixtures team||15.06.2021|
A warm welcome to our news PhDs, Micheal and Tobias. Michael starts his PhD after have concluded his master thesis in our group studying the relation between Efimov scenario and Fermi polarons. Tobias joins us from Karlsruhe where he did his master thesis on optical fiber-based micro resonators. Good luck to both!
|HDVent emergency ventilator system: a child project of COVID-19 times||01.04.2021|
Our group participated to the Physics Institute’s effort to create an emergency ventilator to support patients suffering from COVID-19. David, Manuel, Eleonora, Binh and Saba gave a large contribution to this project child of this year of pandemy. The design of the HDvent Emergency Ventilator has now been published and full details are available open source on the HDVent website and on github!
