An ultracold gas plus an ion! In our project, we plan to realize a new-generation atom-ion machine in order to realize new quantum simulations of a many-body system in the presence of one or more localized impurities. With this setup, we plan to investigate fundamental atom-ion interactions in the ultracold regime, and to use these controlled interactions to realize a platform for investigating out-of-equilibrium quantum systems and quantum thermodynamics.

Measurement campaign for our patented laser

Thanks to bando Trapezio we were able to test new technical advancements on our patented laser design in collaboration with Silentsys. We could reach narrow linewidths (<<1kHz) with minimal effort. More upgrades are yet to come, so stay tuned!
