Professor Theodor W. Hänsch`s group among the "Top Ten" of Physics World

The IOP (Institute of Physics, Bristol, UK) website physicsworld.com has announced this week the “top 10 breakthroughs” in physics for the year 2010. more

A light transistor based on photons and phonons

Researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) discover a novel way to switch light all-optically on a chip. more

Trapping charged particles with laser light

MPQ-scientists demonstrate the feasibility of optical trapping for ions, which may lead to a new kind of hybrid quantum systems. more

Breakdown of correlated tunneling

MPQ-LMU scientists together with scientists from the Weizmann Institute in Israel show, how quantum-mechanical tunneling through a barrier can be altered drastically due to the interplay of many particles in low dimensions more

Quantum simulator and supercomputer at the crossroads

MPQ-LMU scientists in an international collaboration measure for the first time a many-body phase diagram with ultracold atoms in optical lattices at finite temperatures. more

Observing Quantum Particles in Perfect Order

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics succeed in recording single-atom resolved images of a highly correlated quantum gas. more

Attosecond real-time Observation of a Quantum Hole

For the first time ever, physicists from the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (LAP) at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have observed what occurs inside an atom from which a single electron has been ejected. more
