Guided by the desire to help France win the Napoleonic Wars, Sadi Carnot gave birth to Thermodynamics. Although primarily focused on the efficiency of heat engines, such theory had developed into one of the principal pillars of modern physics. Even with the advent of relativity and quantum mechanics, the macroscopic laws of thermodynamics remained unchanged.

Despite the fact that it is an old theory, thermodynamics is far from being a closed subject.

Topic: Precision Spectroscopy on laser-cooled ion Coulomb crystals for atomic clocks.

In 2012, the Nobel Prize was awarded for the laser spectroscopy and manipulation of single ions and the outstanding control of their quantum state. This work had laid the foundation for the development of quantum computers and optical atomic clocks based on laser-cooled ions. The goal of this project is to for the first time perform precision spectroscopy and demonstrate quantum control of a mesoscopic crystal made of single laser-cooled ions.
