Atom Optics and Quantum Sensors

The interaction between light and atomic samples is used to investigate and manipulate these building block of nature. This allows for deep insights in the quantum mechanics of these systems and allows for the contruction of sensors at the quantum limit.
 

 Atom Optics

  • Entangled spinor condensates
    In this experiment we create entangled atomic ensembles by spin changing collisions. The created entanglement can be used to perform atom interferometry beyond the classical precision limit. More

     

     

  • Mesoscopic Atom Chip
    The aim of the mesoscopic atom chip experiment is to build a fast sequential source for Bose-Einstein-Condensates and to realize a continuous atom laser. More

Quantum Sensors

  • ATLAS - Quantum Test of Einstein's Equivalence Principle
    Testing the Universality of Free Fall by means of matterwave interferometry using 87Rb and 39K. More

  • CASI Gyroscope 
    The Sagnac interferometer with cold atoms proved a rotation sensor at the highest resolution. More

  • Magnesium
    The experiment investigates cold magnesium atoms for a future high precision frequency standard. More

  • Quantum Gases in Microgravity (QUANTUS)
    Within the QUANTUS collaboration, compact, robust and mobile experiments for ultra-cold gases in weightlessness are realized. More

  • VLBAI - Very Long Baseline Atom Interferometry
    A new apparatus is currently being set up to explore the frontiers of matter wave interferometry on a 10m vertical baseline. More
