Probing dynamical properties of Fermi-Hubbard systems with a quantum gas microscope

Probing dynamical properties of Fermi-Hubbard systems with a quantum gas microscope (Prof. Waseem Bakr)

The normal state of high-temperature superconductors exhibits anomalous transport and spectral properties that are poorly understood. Cold atoms in optical lattices have been used to realize the celebrated Fermi-Hubbard model, widely believed to capture the essential physics of these materials. The recent development of fermionic quantum gas microscopes has enabled studying Hubbard systems with single-site resolution. Most studies have focused on probing equal-time spin and density correlations. [more]

Trapped ion optical clocks and tests of the equivalence principle

Trapped ion optical clocks and tests of the equivalence principle (Dr. Ekkehard Peik)

Optical clocks based on different atoms and ions with uncertainties in the low 10-18 range allow for frequency comparisons that can be used in tests of fundamental physics, like in quantitative tests of relativity and searches for violations of the equivalence principle. [more]

Laser-cooled molecules for quantum science and tests of fundamental physics

Laser-cooled molecules for quantum science and tests of fundamental physics (Prof. Michael Tarbutt)

Ultracold molecules can be used to test fundamental physics, simulate many-body quantum systems, process quantum information, and study ultracold chemistry. [more]

Probing our understanding of particle- and astrophysics with neutrons

Probing our understanding of particle- and astrophysics with neutrons (Prof. Stephan Paul)

Precision experiments probing the properties of neutrons and details of their decay can reveal important information for both particle and astrophysics. [more]

Passion extreme light

Passion extreme light (Prof. Gérard Mourou)

Extreme-light laser is a universal source providing a vast range of high energy radiations and particles along with the highest field, highest pressure, temperature and acceleration. It offers the possibility to shed light on some of the remaining unanswered questions in fundamental physics like the genesis of cosmic rays with energies in excess of 1020 eV or the loss of information in black-holes.
