A „Quantum“ Insight

Quantum physics today is to be found in almost every corner of our everyday lives. But how well is it understood in society? The new special exhibition ‘Light and Matter’ at the Deutsches Museum starting today illuminates quantum optical phenomena and turns them into tangible matter. With numerous objects, scenoramas and many hands-on stations, the exhibition shows how the understanding of the light matter interaction has evolved over the last century, and offers an insight into current research and future applications. more

On the 1st of May 2024, a new independent research group “ultracold lithium-rubidium molecules” has started at MPQ. Dr. Xinyu Luo, research group leader in the quantum many body division, has been awarded the renowned ERC Consolidator Grant of two million Euros. With the funding, the researchers take on one of the central challenges of modern physics today – the creation and investigation of unconventional superfluids. more

Frozen yoghurt, roses and lasers - Girls' Day 2024 at the MPQ

A packed programme awaited this year's Girls' Day participants. In addition to talks by Dr Silke Stähler-Schöpf, head of the school laboratory, and PhD student Maya Büki, the day's main theme was "try it yourself". In the Photonlab school laboratory, the participants had a go at the various experiments and learnt about physical phenomena in a fun way - in particular, how lasers work, which play an important role in the institute's research. more
