  • New methods to guide and store light
    18 Jan 2019 10:00 - 11:00 PhD defence ceremony
    Optical resonators compress and store light and are instrumental in providing control over the flow of light and its interaction strength with matter - a control required for many technologies involving ...
  • Searching for dark matter with the Xenon1t detector
    11 Jan 2019 11:00 - 12:00 PhD defence ceremony
    Sander Breur focuses on the search for dark matter using the Xenon1t-detector deep under the ground in the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso in Italy.
  • Laser cooled ions in a bath of ultracold atoms
    9 Jan 2019 10:00 - 11:00 PhD defence ceremony
    Henning Fürst describes an experimental setup designed for preparing an ultracold sample of 6Li atoms and overlap it with Yb+ ions that are trapped in a radiofrequency trap. He uses this setup to study the the ...
  • Interaction between Higgs boson and top quark
    14 Dec 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony

    6 Nov 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony
    Eva Llabrés Llambías focuses on aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence which are directly relevant to problems in quantum and classical gravity. Specifically, she uses geodesic Witten diagrams, and gravitational ...
  • Interacting Rydberg atoms on a chip
    1 Nov 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony
    In recent years, Rydberg atoms have been used for exploring a plethora of interesting quantum phenomena. Their strong, long-range and tunable interaction makes them good candidates for applications in quantum ...
  • Running in the early Universe
    25 Oct 2018 12:00 - 13:00 PhD defence ceremony
    If the Universe evolved from a primordial hot and dense state, the expansion and subsequent cooling led to an inescapable fact: there must exist a ubiquitous radiation, the so-called Cosmic Microwave Background ...
  • Exotic phases of matter in quantum magnets
    18 Oct 2018 14:00 - 15:00 PhD defence ceremony
    In many-body systems, the complex interplay between the particles that make up the system can lead to unexpected collective behaviour, giving rise to exotic phases of matter. Well-known examples of such exotic phases ...
