Nondestructive Detection of an Optical Photon" by Andreas Reiserer et al. has been published in Science Express. We provide here free access to abstract and reprint of the manuscript. More information for the general audience can be found in our press release.
November 2013: We welcome Mahmood Sabooni in our goup! Mahmood did his PhD on quantum memories at Lund University in Sweden and is now working as a post-doc on the Qgate-Experiment.
October 2013: We welcome all new members of our group! Bastian Hacker and Josef Schupp are both joining the Qgate-Experiment for a PhD and a Master thesis, respectively. Matthias Körber is reinforcing the Photon Pistol Experiment as a PhD candidate, and Markus Krottenmüller will do a Master thesis with the Molecules.
September 2013: For the anual group retreat the whole group went to Burg Abenberg in Middle Franconia about 25 km south-west to Nürnberg.
September 2013: "Coherent Control of Quantum Fluctuations Using Cavity Electromagnetically Induced Transparency" by James A. Souza et al. has been published in Physical Review Letters.
September 2013: At the Conference on Resonator QED in Munich, Andreas Neuzner received the prize for the best poster presentation. The poster prize was sponsored by "Applied Physics B" and included a trophy money of 300 EUR. Gladly, Andi invested parts of it in a barrel of beer that he shared with the whole group!
August 2013: We are looking forward to the "Conference on Resonator QED" that is taking place in Munich next months. Covered topics include cavity QED, circuit QED, micro-cavities, cavity optomechanics, QIP, hybrid systems as well as QED without cavities. With more than 50 talks, about 60 posters, a public evening lecture held by Serge Haroche and a panel discussion on "Research and Innovation", the conference programme is very rich. More than 140 international guests are expected! The conference is organized in the framework of the CCQED network.

September 2012: For the anual group retreat the whole group went to the Outdoorhotel Jäger-von-Fall at the Sylvensteinsee close to Lenggries.
September 2012: At the NI-Summer-School 2012 in Munich, which was organized within the framework of the CCQED Initial Training Network, one of the best poster prices was awarded to Christian Nölleke for his contribution on "An Elementary Quantum Network of Single Atoms in Optical Cavities". On the same occasion, Christian Nölleke, Christian Sames, and Christoph Hamsen passed the exam for Certified LabVIEW Associate Developpers (CLADs).
July 2012: Martin Zeppenfeld wins one of the best poster awards at the ICAP 2012 in Palaiseau (France). His contribution on "Sisyphus cooling of polyatomic molecules" was honoured with a check of 500 € sponsored by Europhysics Letters.
June 2012: The MPQ Team "Quantensprung" won the dragon boat race on the Olympic Lake which was organized by the TUM Medical Alumni Club. With Gerhard on the drum, the team composed of students, pre- and postdocs mostly from the Quantum Dynamics Group was able to increase their performance throughout the competition and reached the finish line in the final race as first team! As winner of the dragon boat cup, Team "Quantensprung" now has the opportunity to take part in the 8th Oktoberfest-Cup in Munich.
An elementary quantum network of single atoms in optical cavities" by Stephan Ritter et al. has been published in Nature. More information for the general audience can be found in our press release and on the websites of Science, Scientific American and IEEE Spectrum. Spektrum der Wissenschaft and Deutschlandfunk report in German.
March 2012: Manuel Uphoff wins best poster award at the YAO 2012 conference in Krakow, Poland.
