Fundamentals and applications of ultra-cold matter

The Research Training Group 1729 (Graduiertenkolleg 1729) focusses on both fundamental properties and applications of ultra-cold matter, joining the effort of a unique multi-disciplinary combination of theorists and experimentalists in atomic and molecular physics, quantum optics, condensed-matter physics and metrology. The RTG will investigate fundamental properties of quantum gases, with a particular interest in novel research directions as ultra-cold polar molecules, quantum degenerate alkaline-earth gases, non-classical states of matter, and strongly-correlated atomic gases. The RTG will also place special emphasis on the applications of ultra-cold matter, including atom interferometry, atomic sensors, and atomic clocks.

The central goal of the RTG is to provide our PhD students with a deep understanding and broad overview of the area of cold matter while simultaneously involving them early in challenging fore-front research. We aim at providing an excellent internationally competitive training combining well-designed courses and highly-motivating lectures by international visitors with innovative supervision and training concepts.
