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.

|Scattering of two heavy Fermi polarons - resonances and quasibound states: paper published in PRA||17.12.2020|
Our paper on the " Scattering of two heavy Fermi polarons: Resonances and quasibound states” got published this month in PRA! We theoretically investigate the scattering properties and compute the scattering phase shifts and scattering lengths between two heavy impurities in an ideal Fermi gas at zero temperature. We find that impurities strongly and attractively interacting with the medium exhibit resonances in the induced scattering with a sign change of the induced scattering length and even strong repulsion.

|Fermions Meet Two Bosons - the Heteronuclear Efimov Effect Revisited: paper published in Braz. J. Phys.||09.11.2020|
Our paper on the "Fermions Meet Two Bosons—the Heteronuclear Efimov Effect Revisited" got published in Braz. J. Phys., in a special issue for Prof. Mahir S. Hussein! In this paper we theoretically investigate two limiting cases of the Efimov scenario, first, in vacuum, and second, in the presence of a Fermi Sea, focusing on the specific case of two heavy bosons and a light fermion. While the first case reproduces the well-known features of the Efimov effect, the second case provides novel insights serving as a precursor to understand effective interactions of Fermi polarons, i.e., strongly correlated impurities in a Fermi sea.
