This modul introduces important experiments of modern atomic physics, covering

  • Cooling of atomic gases to few nanokelvin
  • Atomic Bose-Einstein condensates and degenerate Fermi gases
  • BEC-BCS cross over, polarons and quantum thermodynamics
  • Atoms in optical lattices: quantum simulation of Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonians
  • Hybrid atom-solid-state systems: Cavity-QED for fundamental tests of quantum mechanics
  • Precision measurements using atomic sensors: electro-magnetism, gravitation and fundamental Constants
