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


Convex Optimization Methods for Image-based 3D Reconstruction (Prof. D. Cremers)

The reconstruction of the 3D world from a moving camera is among the central challenges in computer vision. [more]

An Einsteinian Analogy Sheds Light on Light (Prof. D. Hofstadter)

Where does deep insight in physics come from? For those who view physics as a highly rational science grounded in strict mathematical deduction, it is tempting to think that great physics comes only from the purest and most precise of reasoning, following ironclad laws of thought that compel the clear mind completely rigidly. [more]

Status and prospects of fiber lasers and amplifiers (Prof. A. Tünnermann)

In the past years rare-earth-doped fiber lasers have emerged as an attractive and power scalable solid-state laser concept due to the outstanding thermo-optical properties of an actively doped fiber. [more]

Brillouin-based light storage in a photonic circuit (Dr. B. Stiller)

Brillouin scattering is a fundamental nonlinear opto-acoustic interaction present in optical fibres and other waveguides with important implications in fields ranging from modern telecommunication networks, signal processing and smart optical sensors. [more]

Subcycle quantum physics (Prof. R. Huber)

Atomically strong light pulses in the terahertz window of the electromagnetic spectrum form a unique toolbox to trace and control electronic and ionic quantum motion faster than a cycle of light. [more]
