Michael Guggemos receives his PhD

Congratulations, Michael!

 Thesis Tile: Precision spectroscopy with trapped 40Ca+ and 27Al+ ions





Welcome Christoph Steinlechner

Christoph Steinlechner has now joined the Quantum Simulation team as master student. He will be working on designing single-ion addressing optics.

Revealing quantum statistics with a pair of distant atoms

Paper in PRL published! We devise schemes for demonstrating the symmetrization postulate for indistinguishability in the most elementary form. In particular, we show how to directly measure the phase that two identical trapped ions or neutral atoms acquire when exchanged using a Ramsey-like two-atom interference experiment.

Welcome Lisa Schmöger!

Lisa Schmöger has finished her PhD on the use of cold highly-charged ions for metrology and fundamental physics at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg. Here in Innsbruck, she has joined Tracy's Nanospheres & Ions team.




Welcome Julian Rickert!

After working in the lab as a summer student, Julian Rickert has now joined the eQual team as master student. He will be working on single-ion addressing with laser beams via fibre and mirror arrays.





Welcome Dmitry Bykov!

Dmitry has joined Tracy's Nanospheres and Ions project as a PostDoc. He got his PhD at the MPL Erlangen for his work on trapping particles in hollow-core photonic crystal fibers and its applications. In Innsbruck, he will be building an integrated ion-trap and cavity setup for co-trapping ions and nanospheres.

Petar Jurcevic receives his PhD
