April 2013: Martin Ibrügger wins best poster award at the YAO 2013 conference in Birmingham, England.
April 2013: "Efficient Teleportation Between Remote Single-Atom Quantum Memories" by Christian Nölleke et al. has been published in Physical Review Letters.
December 2012: "Coherent Logic Gate for Light Pulses Based on Storage in a Bose-Einstein Condensate" by Christoph Vo et al. has been published in Physical Review Letters. The work was highlighted by a Physics Synopsis: "Logic with Light and Matter" on the journal's webpage.
"Sisyphus cooling of electrically trapped polyatomic molecules" by Martin Zeppenfeld et al. has been published in Nature, highlighted by an article in "News & Views" by John F. Barry and David DeMille. More information for the general audience can be found in our press release.
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.
September 2011: The whole group went to the Outdoorhotel Jäger von Fall for the annual group retreat.
August 2011: National Instruments (NI) decorates the fast feedback on the motion of a single atom trapped inside an optical cavity, which was realized by our Cavity QED team, with the "Application of the Year 2011", the "Advanced Research Award", and the "FPGA Innovation Award". Christian Sames receives the prizes at the NI-Week in Austin (Texas). More information can be found here.
August 2011: Carolin Hahn wins a poster prize at the Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics on "Quantum Information & Coherence".
August 2011: Nature Photonics reports on our work on remote entanglement and the single-atom quantum memory in their news and views section.
