Seminars

On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives. The location will be announced with the event.
Room: Herbert Walther Lecture Hall
Incompatibility in quantum mechanics is famously captured through uncertainty relations. In this talk, we adopt the perspective that incompatibility can be fundamentally understood in terms of emulation of measurements by other measurements. [more]

Ultrafast mid-infrared laser systems and broad-band precision molecular spectroscopy

Ultrafast mid-infrared laser systems and broad-band precision molecular spectroscopy
Femtosecond laser sources operating in the near- and middle-infrared (mid-IR) spectral range with high- repetition rates are of upmost interest for a variety of applications ranging from ultrafast spectroscopy, high-resolution and broadband spectroscopy, quantum optics, frequency metrology and synthesis of mid-IR optical frequency combs.

Certification of Quantum Measurements and New Entangled Quantum Probes

Certification of Quantum Measurements and New Entangled Quantum Probes
In the quantum information literature, self-testing refers to the action of uniquely determining a quantum state based solely on the statistics of measurement outcomes and minimal assumptions. These quantum self-testing protocols are more stringent than well-known Bell tests. While violation of a Bell inequality for a bipartite system establishes that its quantum state is entangled, it cannot certify, for instance, that its quantum state is maximally entangled. We extend self-testing techniques to certification of quantum measurements in various physical settings. [more]

Fundamental science by high-power microwaves - Millimeter-wave spectroscopy of positronium hyperfine structure and further ( Prof. Dr. Akira Miyazaki)

Fundamental science by high-power microwaves - Millimeter-wave spectroscopy of positronium hyperfine structure and further
The microwave technology has been one of the important tools in fundamental physics since Rabi's pioneering work on hydrogen atoms. In this seminar, direct spectroscopy of positronium hyperfine structure with very high frequency microwaves, often referred to as millimeter or sub-THz waves, will be discussed. [more]

Direct laser cooling to Bose-Einstein condensation (Alban Urvory)

Direct laser cooling to Bose-Einstein condensation
Laser cooling methods are virtually ubiquitous for the production of ultracold quantum gases. Yet in order to reach quantum degeneracy, a complementary step of lossy and inefficient evaporative cooling has so far been required (with few specific exceptions). [more]
