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.

|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!

|Lauriane Chomaz arrives in Heidelberg as new Jun.-Prof. and joins the Mixtures team!||01.02.2021|
Lauriane Chomaz received her nomination as Junior Professor of Heidelberg University and will start setting up her group "Quantum Fluids" and her new lab on quantum dipolar gases of Dy atoms at the Physikalisches Institut. In parallel, she will also join the Mixtures team to explore the physics of quantum atomic mixtures with extreme mass imbalance! Good luck and welcome to our team, Lauriane!

|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.
