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


Triggering Molecular Processes with Light (Prof. J. Wachtveitl)

Molecular systems that can be remotely controlled by light are gaining increasing importance in bio-sciences. High spatial and temporal precision is achievable with short laser pulses and in principle there are three approaches for light regulation. [more]

Chiral Quantum Optics (Prof. A. Rauschenbeutel)

Controlling the interaction of light and matter is the basis for diverse applications ranging from light technology to quantum information processing. Nowadays, many of these applications are based on nanophotonic structures. [more]

3D Printing of Complex Microoptics – Merging with Plasmonic Nanooptics (Prof. H. Giessen)

Microoptics has a plethora of applications, ranging from miniature endoscopes in hospitals to beam shaping or imaging. 3D printing with a femtosecond laser and two-photon polymerization allows for manufacturing optical elements directly after their design with an optical CAD program on a computer, with a resolution better than 100 nm and a high accuracy and reproducibility.

Searching for dark fields with atom interferometry (Prof. P. Hamilton)

One of the great mysteries of modern physics is the identity of nearly 95% of our Universe, which has been labelled as dark matter and dark energy. The high precision of atom interferometry gives a new way to explore this mystery. [more]
