IAP Research Groups

Nonlinear Quantum Optics

Prof. Dr. Sebastian Hofferberth

Our group explores how we can create strong optical nonlinearity in a medium at light levels of individual photons. Our goal is to realize a system that enables full control over the quantum state of few photon light pulses.

Quantum Optics 

Prof. Dr. Martin Weitz

Our group conducts experiments on the following topics: quantum physics of ultracold atomic gases, equilibrium thermodynamics of light, and laser cooling of dense gases.

Quantum Technology

Prof. Dr. Dieter Meschede

The experiments from the Quantum Technology group are currently being shut down.

Quantum Fluids Of Light

Dr. Julian Schmitt

Our experimental research is focused on quantum fluids of light to study emergent phenomena both in and out of equilibrium - such as superfluidity or turbulence.
