- We offer a PhD position at the rubidium experiment: In the new project, ultracold chemical reactions will be controlled and detected using an optical microcavity for the first time.
More information: Ultracold Chemistry in optical cavities
- In our Rubidium Lab we were able to create an ensemble of aligned molecules in an optical lattice which has been probed using a novel method.
The results are published in Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 233004 (2014).
For a synopsis, see spotlight article of the American Physical Society and Physik in unserer Zeit.
- On January 28, 2014, we were able to observe the first molecular Bose-Einstein condensate made out of fermionic lithium atoms in our LiLaLab.
