"Quantum simulation with ions"
Docent: Prof. Dr. Christian Ospelkaus
This lecture will present an overview of results and techniques in ion-based quantum logic and quantum simulation. I will start by reviewing ion traps, cover surface-electrode traps, discuss the introduction of effective spin-spin interactions mediated through motional nor-mal modes. I will discuss present efforts to exploit these couplings for the implementation and simulation of different types of spin-spin Hamiltonians. This has the potential of pushing the field to a point where systems can be realized in a controlled way which could not be si-mulated efficiently classically, thus paving the way to a deeper understanding of many-body physics.

"Spinor Bose-Einstein Condensates"
Docent: Dr. Carsten Klempt
Bose-Einstein condensates with spin degree of freedom present not only a fascinating system for fundamental studies of magnetic phases. They may also be applied to generate entanglad states of neutral atoms. I will introduce the spin exchange interaction in BECs. Then, I will review the relevant foundations of quantum optics. Finally I will present quantum atom optics results from our laboratory and present the analogy to classic photon quantum optics experiments.
