The major focus in our group is to study the physics of ultra-cold atoms and quantum gases in zero gravity. Quantum optical experiments in microgravity can extend the science of such degenerate quantum gases towards inaccessible regimes of lowest temperatures, possibly below pico-Kelvin, macroscopic dimensions, and unequalled durations of unperturbed free evolution...   mehr...

 

As a spin-off to our drop tower experiments, we have come to apply optical frequency references such as optical high finesse cavities or a frequency comb in these experiments. In our atom interferometry projects these are applied as a highly stable frequency reference for the beam splitter lasers. Beyond this application...mehr...
