 Modern Optics   

Theoretical Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics



The AMO group at HU Berlin performs research in a wide range of theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical physics / theoretical quantum optics. This ranges from the theoretical treatment of atoms and molecules exposed to ultrashort intense laser pulses via ultracold quantum gases (in optical lattices) and their application for quantum simulation or quantum computers to atomic and molecular problems in the context of fundamental questions of physics (directly relevant, e.g., for the tritium neutrino-mass experiment KATRIN, the Holmium neutrino-mass experiment ECHo, or antimatter-matter collisions).


Open Bachelor and Master thesis projects are available.

A new grant within the APPA R&D @ FAIR collaboration has been received by our group from the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research). The research network is associated to the SPARC (Stored Particles Atomic Physics Research) Collaboration that uses the new Facility for Antiptroton and Ions Research in Europe (FAIR) that is under construction at GSI (Darmstadt, Germany). Starting date is 01.07.2018.

The KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino-mass experiment (KATRIN) has been inaugurated on June 11, 2018, and started its first tritium measurements. (We are a member of the KATRIN collaboration.)
