The project is aimed at the creation and manipulation of atomic density patterns by contact-free self-assembly due to optomechanical forces. We are looking at large patches (samples size of some millimetres) of laser cooled matter (around 100 µK), which will be structured on scales of wavelengths to hundreds of micrometres. The spatial structure is not imposed externally but evolves spontaneously from an instability of the homogeneous atomic cloud in interaction with a homogeneous light field.

We are looking for a motivated PhD student who is interested to work at the interface between the foundations of quantum mechanics and particle physics. The project aims at the investigation of possible Bell inequality violations in systems of neutral mesons and the modeling of the relevant decay processes with methods from quantum optics.

The Quantum Information Group at the Institute of Theoretical Physics invites applications for positions for three

Research Assistants (67 % - 100%)
Salary Scale 13 TV-L

to be appointed as soon as possible.

These positions are parts of different fundings and therefore differently limited. They are open for Postdocs, as well as graduate students.
