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


Quantum Nano-Optics with Organic Molecules and Rare Earth Ions (Prof. V. Sadoghdar)

I plan to start this presentation with an overview of our work over the past decade on the efficient coupling of light and single quantum emitters, leading to the single-photon communication of two individual molecules at long distances [1]. [more]

MAGIC with Trapped Ions (Prof. C. Wunderlich)

Trapped atomic ions are a well-advanced physical system for quantum information science (QIS). QIS is meant to encompass the quest for a specialized, or even universal processor for quantum information, the investigation of fundamental questions of quantum physics, as well as applications of techniques emanating from these investigations to other fields, for example, precision spectroscopy and sensing.

Thermodynamics and order beyond equilibrium - the physics of periodically driven quantum systems (Prof. R. Moessner)

The field of thermodynamics is one of the crown jewels of classical physics. However, only comparatively recently, due to the advent of experiments in cold atomic systems with long coherence times, has our detailed understanding of its connection to quantum statistical mechanics seen remarkable progress.

Driven-dissipative Bose-Einstein condensates (Prof. H. Ott)

Ultracold quantum gases are usually well isolated from the environment. This allows for the study of ground state properties and unitary dynamics of many-body quantum systems under almost ideal conditions. [more]
