The World of Quantum Matter
M. WEIDEMUELLER / Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg

In my lecture series, I will present the recent spectacular advances in the field of quantum gases and macroscopic quantum physics. A variety of subjects will be covered including Bose condensates and degenerate Fermi gases, ultracold molecules and chemistry near absolute zero, Rydberg gases, single-atom manipulation, quantum information processing, as well as applications of cold atoms as precision targets.

The topics of the lectures are:

  1. Physics near absolute zero
  2. Bose condensation and Fermi degeneracy
  3. Molecules, Rydberg gases and other exotic species
  4. Single-atom manipulation, quantum information processing and ultracold atoms as targets in storage rings.
