Dr. Masaki Hori

The Research Group 'antimatter spectroscopy', since 2013 financed by an ERC Starting Grant, carries out precise laser and microwave spectroscopy of atoms containing antimatter, and develops new techniques to manipulate antimatter particles using superconducting radiofrequency traps. ...

Dr. Eleftherios Goulielmakis

Attoelectronics is a term coined to describe the capability of triggering, as well as driving the motion of electrons within tens to thousands of attoseconds (1 as =10-18 sec); that is, on the native time scale of electronic processes in the fundamental constituents of matter--i.e. in atoms, molecules or more complex quantum systems such as a nanoparticles or nanostructures.

Pohl_teaser_webMUONIC ATOMS
Dr. Randolf Pohl

Our research is dedicated to laser spectroscopy of muonic atoms and ions. These are exotic systems in which one negative muon replaces the atoms' electrons. Muons are very the heavy brothers of electrons. Both are point-like particles, but muons are about 200 times heavier. Therefore, muons get on average 200 times closer to the atomic nucleus than electrons do.This makes the muon much more sensitive to the properties of the nucleus.
