About the Quantum Optics and Ultracold Atoms section: The permanent faculty members within the section are Professor Peter Lodahl , Associate professor Joerg H. Müller, Professor Eugene S. Polzik (head of the section), Professor Albert Schliesser, Professor Anders S. Sørensen, and Professor Jan W. Thomsen. Read more about the section >>
The group works with experimental setups in the laboratory, where the atoms are trapped in a magnetic field, where they are held by precise beams of laser light and are cooled down to near absolute zero, minus 273 degrees Celsius. The result is an atomic clock that is now so precise that it only loses one second every 300 million years.
Research at Quantop
At QUANTOP - the Quantum Optics Center – we study quantum effects at light-matter interface. Particles of light, photons, are great for creating, reading out and transmitting quantum information between material objects.
