Creation of a fermionic condensate of ultracold atoms. This condensate of generalized Cooper pairs is considered to be the first realization of a fermionic superfluid in the strongly interacting BCS-BEC crossover regime.
Realization of a molecular Bose-EInstein condensate created from an ultracold gas of fermionic atoms.
3/00 – 4/03 PhD in experimental Physics, Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Munich:
Bose-Einstein condensates in three-dimensional optical lattices.
Quantum Phase transition from a superfluid to a Mott insulator in a ultracold gas of atoms.
Collapse and revival of the matter wave field of a Bose-Einstein condensate.
Spin elective transport in optical lattices: Creation of large scale entanglement of atoms in optical lattices via cold coherent collisions.
Creation of Molecules via photo-association in an optical lattice.
Conception and realization of the experiments and theoretical calculations; in the group of T. Hänsch, Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Munich and Max-Planck Institut fùr Quantenoptik, Garching.
This thesis was awarded the prize of the American Physical Society for the best thesis in AMO physics, DAMOP 2004 and the William L. McMillan Award for outstanding contributions in condensed matter physics.
1/99 – 2/00 Diploma Thesis in experimental Physics:
Transport of magnetically trapped atoms: a simple approach to Bose-Einstein condensation.
Development of a new scheme for a Bose-Einstein condensate apparatus for optical lattice experiments; design and set up of the apparatus; in the group of T. Hänsch, Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Munich
John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellow, 2011.
