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


Label-free chemical imaging: Unveiling hidden signatures for molecule-based diagnosis and treatment (Prof. Ji-Xin Cheng)

Optical microscopy has been a fundamental tool to life science and materials science since its invention in the 17th century. [more]

Deciphering complex quantum systems (Prof. A. Buchleitner)

Not many ingredients are needed for a quantum system to turn complex, with the helium atom as the arguably most elementary example. [more]

Rotating molecules and fundamental constants (Prof. S. Schiller)

Molecules provide exciting opportunities for precision measurements - significantly extending those offered by atoms. [more]

Imaging in Biology and Biomedicine (Prof.Steven Chu)

In recent years, new imaging probes such as green fluorescent proteins, optical tweezers, single molecule FRET and super-resolution microscopy are having a profound impact on biological sciences. [more]

Precision spectroscopic measurements in H2, H2+, He2 and He2+(Prof. Merkt)

Few-electron molecules represent attractive systems for precision spectroscopy because their properties can be calculated with extraordinary accuracy by ab initio quantum-chemical methods. [more]
