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

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]

Fundamental Physics with (weird) Magnetic Resonance (Prof. D. Budker)

I will discuss the ongoing experiments (CASPEr and GNOME) searching for ultralight galactic dark matter using magnetic-resonance techniques and a new approach to measuring parity violation in chiral molecular systems. [more]

Optical Atomic Clocks: From Laboratory Experiments to International Time Keeping (Dr. H. Margolis)

Optical atomic clocks based on laser-cooled atoms or single trapped ions have made rapid progress over the past few years, with the most advanced now having reached levels of stability and uncertainty that significantly surpass the performance of caesium primary frequency standards. [more]
