next colloquium



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


Collective quantum dynamics: from information scrambling to emergent hydrodynamics (Prof. M. Knap)

Generic, clean quantum many-body systems approach a thermal equilibrium after a long time evolution. In order to reach a global equilibrium, conserved quantities have to be transported across the whole system which is a rather slow process governed by diffusion. [more]

Quantum Measurements on Trapped Ions (Prof. J. Home)

Measurement as defined in quantum physics rarely corresponds to what is performed in the laboratory. [more]

Manipulating nuclei with laser light: the quest of Thorium-229 (Prof. T. Schumm)

The radio isotope Thorium-229 is expected to present a remarkably low-energy excited (isomer) state of the nucleus which is expected around 7.8(5) eV. [more]

Quantum optics with trapped ions – from single ion heat engines to ions in vortex laser fields (Prof. F. Schmidt-Kaler)

Trapped single ions and ion crystal exhibit excellent control of the internal spin– and the external motional-degree of freedom. Multi-particle quantum entangled states are generated with high fidelity in view of a future quantum computer with trapped ions. [more]

The Alchemy of Vacuum - Hybridizing Light and Matter (Prof. T. Ebbesen)

Strong coupling of light and matter can give rise to a multitude of exciting physical effects through the formation of hybrid light-matter states. [more]
