Talks are held in the Herbert Walther Lecture Hall at MPQ and can additionally be attended online. Currently face masks are not mandatory at MPQ. It is recommended, however, to wear a mask during the Colloquium talk. Audiences not affiliated with the MPQ are also welcome.

Details on how to participate online are distributed via the mailing lists [wiss-mpq] and [Mpq-colloquium-stream]. To receive this information, please register using the attached link.

Scientific organization of the talks:  Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem

Macroscopic objects in the quantum regime (MCQST-Colloquium) (Prof. Eugene Polzik)

The size and mass of physical systems in which entangled states, number states and other non-classical states can be generated is growing. In the talk I will first review our experiments with macroscopic mechanical and atomic systems where measurements with sensitivity exceeding the standard quantum limits have been performed [1,2].

Geometric Squeezing and Crystallization of Bosonic Quantum Hall States (Prof. Martin Zwierlein)

Rapidly rotating quantum gases realize the physics of charged particles in high magnetic fields. We developed a novel protocol, geometric squeezing, that enables to create Bose-Einstein condensates in a single Landau gauge wavefunction of the lowest Landau level. Based on the non-commutativity of guiding center X and Y coordinates, geometric squeezing in a saddle potential is a real space analogue to squeezing in phase space of a one-dimensional particle in an inverted harmonic oscillator potential.
