Synthetic Quantum Systems

We employ experimental tools developed over the past 25 years, such as laser cooling and magneto-optical trapping, to confine and to cool atomic particles down to the nanokelvin range. Using these degenerate gases, we investigate the dynamics of matter waves in optically designed potentials.

On this homepage, we give an overview of the research we are doing, which is also described in more detail in our publications. Furthermore, there is information on the current and past lectures and seminars given by members of our group.

Some aspects of our research are also briefly explained in this video clip by the DFG about the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics.


The Second International Workshop on Tracer Applications of Noble Gas Radionuclides in the Geosciences (TANGR2015)

will take place at Heidelberg University, March 26-29, 2015


The 589. Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Seminar Continuous Variable Entanglement in Atomic Systems: Fundamentals and Applications

will take place in Bad Honnef, May 11-14, 2015
