<h3>Lithium Quantum Gas Microscope</h3>
Using quantum gas microscopy of fermionic 6-Li atoms, we are exploring the intriguing physics of the Fermi Hubabrd model and its associated phase diagram. Our unique setup allows for a full spin and density resolved imaging at the single atom level. more
Strontium Cavity Quantum Gas Microscope
In April 2015, we started a new lab with the aim of studying many-body quantum physics with ultracold strontium atoms in optical lattices. Our lab is located at the Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching. more
In July 2017, we started the new Caesium lab to study topological many-body phases of matter. We will make use of state-dependent lattices to engineer artificial gauge fields and use the unique possibilities offered by high-resolution imaging techniques to prepare and investigate many-body phenomena in these lattices. more
Ultracold Polar Molecules
In this experiment we aim to create a strongly interacting gas with long range interactions. Polar ground state molecules in an external fields provide tuneable dipolar interaction. more
<h3>Ultracold atoms in a honeycomb optical lattice</h3>
In this experiment, we use ultracold atoms in a graphene-like honeycomb lattice to realize a clean and highly tunable system in which to probe topological effects that are difficult to study in solid state systems. more
<h1 class="csc-firstHeader">Ultracold Fermions in Optical Lattices</h1>
We use fermionic 40K atoms to study the dynamics of highly excited many-body systems. In particular, we investigate thermalization properties of interacting and disordered systems, which feature a new phase of matter, called many-body localization (MBL). more
<h1 class="csc-firstHeader">Ultracold Ytterbium in optical lattices</h1>
This new setup uses Ytterbium atoms to generate quantum gases with novel properties. These atoms have a more complex internal structure than Alkali atoms, which allows for state-dependent interaction with light and other atoms. more
Using ultracold bosons in optical superlattice potentials, we aim at realizing minimal versions of topologically ordered quantum phases. Such phases with topological order cannot be classified by an order parameter and represent a new class of many-body systems without local order. more
