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

Combs and isotopic customization for trapped ion quantum computing (Prof. W. Campbell)

Since ions bind their valence electrons tightly, the light needed to work with them is often in the UV part of the spectrum, where laser light is difficult to produce and manage. [more]

Molecular spectroscopy with laser frequency combs (Dr. N. Picqué)

Almost twenty years ago, optical frequency combs – spectra made of millions of phase-coherent evenly spaced narrow laser lines – have revolutionized time and frequency measurements. [more]

How to count one photon and get a result of 1000 (Prof. A. Steinberg)

I will present our recent experimental work using electromagnetically induced transparency in laser-cooled atoms to measure the nonlinear phase shift created by a single post-selected photon, and its enhancement through "weak-value amplification." [more]

Correlations of a quantum system in real and momentum space (Prof. S. Jochim)

The properties of a many body system are encoded in correlations between the particles. [more]
