Welcome Julian Rickert

After working in the lab as a summer student, Julian Rickert has now joined the eQual team as master student. He will be working on single-ion addressing with laser beams via fibre and mirror arrays.


Welcome Dmitry Bykov!

Dmitry has joined Tracy's Nanospheres and Ions project as a PostDoc. He got his PhD at the MPL Erlangen for his work on trapping particles in hollow-core photonic crystal fibers and its applications. In Innsbruck, he will be building an integrated ion-trap and cavity setup for co-trapping ions and nanospheres.


Petar Jurcevic receives his PhD

Congratulations, Petar!

 Thesis Title: Quantum Computation and Many-Body
Physics with Trapped Ions

 

 

 

 


Welcome Slava Uryumtsev

Slava has joined the group as a software developer for the new experiment control software TrICS. He is a student from the University of British Columbia, Canada, and will work with us for the next eight months.

 

 

 

 


Welcome Pau Mestres

Pau has joined Tracy's Nanospheres and Ions project as a PostDoc. He has done his PhD at ICFO on optical trapping and cavity optomechanics. Here in Innsbruck, he will work on the construction of a ion-trap and cavity setup for co-trapping ions and nanospheres.

 

 

 


Christian Roos receives ERC Advanced Grant

Christian Roos, experimental physicist at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, has received one of the Advanced Grants conferred by the European Research Council (ERC). The grant provides Roos and his research team at the IQOQI with up to 2.5 million Euro for the next five years to build a new type of quantum simulator.


Welcome Lorenzo Dania

Lorenzo has joined the new Nanospheres + Ions group of Tracy E. Northup as an external master student. He did his undergraduate studies at the Università di Pisa and in his master project he will work on co-trapping an ion and a nanosphere in the same trap.
