Many-body Quantum Dynamics

Welcome to our website!

We are studying many-body phenomena at the interface between quantum optics and solid state physics. Following a statement by P.W. Anderson, "More is Different", genuine many-body phenomena are emergent phenomena that only appear when many particles come together, typical examples being superfluidity or magnetism.

Our main tool are quantum gases and in particular ultracold atoms in optical lattices.

Please read on if you want to learn more about our research.

Please contact us if you are interested in working with us as an undergraduate (e.g. for an external Master's thesis) or graduate student or Postdoc!
