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


Potential Energy Surfaces and Berry Phases beyond the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation (Prof. E. Gross)

The starting point of essentially all modern electronic-structure techniques is the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. It not only makes calculations feasible, it also provides us with an intuitive picture of chemical reactions. [more]

Schrödinger Cat States and Quantum Error Correction for Bosonic Modes (Prof. S. Girvin)

Recent remarkable experimental progress in ‘circuit QED’ now allows realization of extremely strong dispersive coupling between superconducting qubits and microwave photons in resonators. [more]

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]
