Gasenzer Group

We are using quantum field theoretical tools to investigate many-body quantum systems. The focus of our research is set on ultracold quantum gases nowadays prepared and studied in many laboratories world-wide, including our own within our Synthetic Quantum Systems group at the Kirchhoff-Institut für Physik, and those within the Heidelberg Center for Quantum Dynamics. Dynamical properties of many-body systems far from equilibrium are at the centre of our attention.

Far-from-equilibrium quantum dynamics group

Head of the group: Thomas Gasenzer

Our research topics include...

  • ...ultracold quantum gases far from equilibrium,
  • ...dynamical critical phenomena and quantum turbulence,
  • ...highly correlated quantum systems and entanglement,
