<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
