Quantum Simulations with Ions & Optical Ion and Atom Trapping 


  • 25.09.15 We study thermalization and the emergence of statistical mechanics in an isolated quantum system by coupling a spin to a continuously scaled bosonic environment. Paula
  • 10.07.15 the physics institute at the Freiburger science fair; see here for more information (only german).
  • 22.04.15 first lecture Fortgeschrittene Experimentalphysik für Lehramtsstudierende; you find more information here: Lehre (only german).

  • 07.02.14 A noval high-resolution spectroscopy method in which the detection of single excitation events is enhanced by a complete loss of coherence of a superposition of two ground states. We employ this method on Mg ion to measure one-, two-, and three-photon transition frequencies Paula.
