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.
- Quantum Gravimeter (QG-1)
A novel compact and portable gravimeter for in field use is beeing set up utilizing Bose-Einstein condensates to overcome current limitations in the accuracy of the determination of gravity. More
