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..

Attention! Due to the recontstruction of the foyer at the MPQ talks will take place at the interims Lecuture Hall in Room B 0.32.

Scientific organization of the talks: Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem


Fundamental Physics with (weird) Magnetic Resonance (Prof. D. Budker)

I will discuss the ongoing experiments (CASPEr and GNOME) searching for ultralight galactic dark matter using magnetic-resonance techniques and a new approach to measuring parity violation in chiral molecular systems. [more]

Optical Atomic Clocks: From Laboratory Experiments to International Time Keeping (Dr. H. Margolis)

Optical atomic clocks based on laser-cooled atoms or single trapped ions have made rapid progress over the past few years, with the most advanced now having reached levels of stability and uncertainty that significantly surpass the performance of caesium primary frequency standards. [more]

Are we quantum computers, or merely clever robots? (Prof. M. Fisher)

Of course quantum information processing is not possible in the warm wet brain. There is, however, one \loophole" - oered by nuclear spins - that must be closed before acknowledging that we are merely clever robots. [more]

Collective quantum dynamics: from information scrambling to emergent hydrodynamics (Prof. M. Knap)

Generic, clean quantum many-body systems approach a thermal equilibrium after a long time evolution. In order to reach a global equilibrium, conserved quantities have to be transported across the whole system which is a rather slow process governed by diffusion. [more]

Quantum Measurements on Trapped Ions (Prof. J. Home)

Measurement as defined in quantum physics rarely corresponds to what is performed in the laboratory. [more]
