Information for Visitors
Would you like to find out more – first hand – about the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics? Perhaps you would like to take a look at the labs and talk directly to the scientists working there about their research projects?
If so, we would be happy to organize a tour for you. Groups of up to 30 people – delegations, physics students, school classes, but also any other interested persons – are most welcome.
A visit to the MPQ involves:
- An introduction to the institute, covering its organisational structure, history and research topics. Duration: about 30 – 45 minutes
- A tour through two or three labs guided by scientists who explain their experiments. Duration: about 90 minutes
Total duration: about two hours
Currently the following experiments can be viewed on the tour:
|Attosecond Physics||Atomic „photography“ with attosecond pulses||ca. 45 minutes|
|Laser Spectroscopy||Laser frequency comb||ca. 30 minutes|
|Hydrogen spectroscopy||ca. 30 minutes|
|Quantum Dynamics||Cold polar molecules||ca. 30 minutes|
|Bose Einstein Condensaten||ca. 30 minutes|
|Single Photon Server / Q-Gate||ca. 30 minutes|
|Photon pistol||ca. 30 minutes|
|Quantum Many-Body Systems||Optical lattices||ca. 30 minutes|
