Ultracold Quantum Gases WS 2021/22

Lecture WS 2021/22, Simon Fölling


  • Change of time for Thursday lecture: To make it easier to reach other lectures in time, we have been asked to move the lecture on Thursdays forward to 2 c.t. - so the plan is to do 14:00 to 15:30 from now on on Thursdays. Please let us know if there is an issue / concern with this.
  • Tutorial times: You can now fill in your preferred time in the survey, using the link you received or via the Moodle site.
  • Moodle keys: if you registered via LSF, then you should have received an e-mail at some point, which contains the moodle access key that we will use this semester. If you cannot use LSF (yet), please send an e-mail, or tell us at the lecture!
  • Welcome to the "Ultracold Quantum Gases" lecture! Stay tuned for more information to come...

About this Lecture

The course gives an introduction into the field of ultracold quantum gases. The lectures are combined with a weekly journal club, where we discuss original publications related to the lecture. Additional problem sets supplement the course.

The technical / organizational requirements are as follows:

  • Please register to the course via LSF, and make sure you read your campus e-mail account in order to get notifications from this system. If you have no access to LSF yet, please send an e-mail.

In the (approximately) weekly journal club we will discuss original publications related to the course. The selected papers will be posted on the Website and should be read prior to the Journal Club. In weeks without journal club a regular lecture will be held instead.


Basic knowledge in atomic physics and quantum mechanics. Knowledge in statistical physics is helpful but not required
