PhD Graduations

Here we report on successfully defended PhD promotions at MPQ

Marcel Duda invents a novel method to produce fermionic polar molecules

His doctoral thesis focused on the production of fermionic polar molecules from potassium and sodium atoms. Contrary to previous assumptions, he was able to show that the molecule production procedure is both possible and highly efficient. Well done! more

Roman Bause and his team develop new cooling method for polar molecules 

With his dissertation project, he contributed significantly to the development of a new microwave technique that allows polar molecules to be cooled to record low temperatures, a few nanokelvin above absolute zero. Congratulations! more

Christina Hofer optimises method for measuring ultrashort light pulses, breaking previous records<br /> 

Christina Hofer, who first joined the MPQ as a working student, has completed her doctorate. She will continue her research as a postdoctoral student at the University of British Columbia. Congratulations! more

Annie Parks builds a new quantum simulator that will substantially improve future quantum simulations

Annie Park, doctoral student of the Quantum Many Body Systems division, successfully completed her PhD in December 2021. For her dissertation project, she built a new strontium-based quantum simulator that will help significantly improve the quality of future quantum simulations as well as expand them to new areas. Congratulations! more

Congratulations to Nicola Pancotti on finishing his PhD!

In his doctoral thesis, Nicola worked on finding new methods for the study of quantum mechanical systems. His research might furthermore help us use quantum physics in other fields such as machine learning. more

Johannes Knörzer wins the MCQST PhD Award 2020

MPQ congratulates Johannes Knörzer on winning the MCQST PhD Award 2020. The annual prize honours the two best PhD theses from the Munich Center of Quantum Science and Technology (MCQST) community. The award aims to encourage young researchers to pursue a career in science. more

Antonio Rubio provides evidence for novel phenomena in thermodynamics and statistical physics

Antonio Rubio successfully defends his PhD thesis and starts a postdoctoral position at ICFo Barcelona. In his thesis, he provides evidence for the existence of two physical phenomena that had been predicted theoretically but not yet tested experimentally. Congratulations! more

<p>Thomas Gantner brings science a little closer to the Bose-Einstein-condensate of polyatomic molecules</p>
<div> </div>

Thomas Gantner joined the MPQ as an undergraduate student assistant. Eight years later, he has successfully completed his PhD and moved on to new adventures. more

Matthias Körber makes an important step to prolong the storage duration of quantum states.

After five and a half years of research, Matthias Körber successfully completed his PhD in December 2020. more

In his PhD thesis, Alexey Grinin performs the most accurate test of electrodynamics up do date

After six years at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ), Alexey Grinin successfully defended his PhD thesis on 18 August 2020; his doctoral thesis might help find the solution of one of the most prominent problems in physics. more

Nicolas Tolazzi has successfully completed his doctorate at MPQ

On October 22nd Nicolas Tolazzi has successfully defended his PhD thesis in the Quantum Dynamics division of Gerhard Rempe. He has been working at MPQ since March 2015. Now he will be starting to develop digital simulations for the industry. more

Henrik Dreyer has successfully defended his thesis!

On the 28th of September, Henrik Dreyer, PhD candidate in the theory group of Ignacio Cirac, has successfully defended his thesis at the TU München and therefore completed his dissertation. After six years at MPQ, he now leaves the institute for a postdoctoral fellowship in Oxford. From us to him, the best of luck! more
