Theory of Quantum Sensors

To exploit the full potential of quantum sensors for inertial applications and tests of fundamental physics, a careful quantum state engineering of ultra-cold atomic ensembles is required. Degenerate quantum gases are prime candidates to rise to both challenges: slow expansion rates and high control of their degrees of freedom. Our research takes advantage of most novel and efficient techniques in the field of quantum gases to design advanced interferometry schemes. We engage in a direct collaborative effort with a large number of leading experimental groups at the IQ, in Europe and internationally.
