next colloquium

  • The colloquium series will resume at the beginning of the next term in April/October.



Our series of Colloquium Talks takes place from October till January and from April till July, on Tuesdays, at 2:30 p.m., at MPQ’s Herbert Walther Lecture Hall.

Scientific organization of the talks: Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Johannes Kofler


Schrödinger Cat States and Quantum Error Correction for Bosonic Modes (Prof. S. Girvin)

Recent remarkable experimental progress in ‘circuit QED’ now allows realization of extremely strong dispersive coupling between superconducting qubits and microwave photons in resonators. [more]

Triggering Molecular Processes with Light (Prof. J. Wachtveitl)

Molecular systems that can be remotely controlled by light are gaining increasing importance in bio-sciences. High spatial and temporal precision is achievable with short laser pulses and in principle there are three approaches for light regulation. [more]

Chiral Quantum Optics (Prof. A. Rauschenbeutel)

Controlling the interaction of light and matter is the basis for diverse applications ranging from light technology to quantum information processing. Nowadays, many of these applications are based on nanophotonic structures. [more]

3D Printing of Complex Microoptics – Merging with Plasmonic Nanooptics (Prof. H. Giessen)

Microoptics has a plethora of applications, ranging from miniature endoscopes in hospitals to beam shaping or imaging. 3D printing with a femtosecond laser and two-photon polymerization allows for manufacturing optical elements directly after their design with an optical CAD program on a computer, with a resolution better than 100 nm and a high accuracy and reproducibility.
