Welcome Tetsu Takekoshi

Tetsu Takekoshi has joined the group as a PostDoc.

Tetsu has done his PhD at the University of Southern California on quasi-electrostatic trapping of neutral atoms. His most recent position was a PostDoc in the cold atoms group of our institute. He will now work in the eQual team on scalable quantum information processing.

Welcome Reouven Assouly

Reouven Assouly has joined the group as trainee. Reouven is studying physics at the ENS in Paris and will be staying with us for five months. He will be working on the 2D-arrays project in our group with Philip Holz.





Regina Lechner receives her PhD

Congratulations, Regina!

Thesis title: “Multimode cooling techniques for trapped ions”







Welcome Pierre Jobez!

Pierre Jobez has joined the CQED team as a postdoc. Pierre did his PhD at the Université de Genève in Nicolas Gisin's group. His topic was the development of a solid-state quantum memory with millisecond storage time and high efficiency. In our group, he will be working as a postdoc on the fiber cavity project.


Welcome Florian Kranzl!

Florian Kranzl has joined the Cavity QED team as a master student. He has studied physics in Innsbruck and will now work on the Fibercavity project. He will improve the annealing of fibre-based cavities as well as their characterization.




Welcome Helene Hainzer!

Helene Hainzer has joined the PhiNet team as a master student. She has studied in Innsbruck and will now work on her master thesis. She will set up a new reference cavity for the transfer lock of the new PhiNet cavity-QED setup.




Welcome Viktor Krutianskii!

Viktor has recently joined our group. He got his masters and PhD degrees from the Department of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University in Russia. His research was focussed on the application of nonlinear optics for studying nanostructures. After finishing his thesis, titled "Magnetization-induced effects in optical and nonlinear-optical response of metallic nanoparticles", he has now joined the PhiNet-team to work on quantum interfaces and frequency conversion.

Rainer Blatt receives the Quantum Communication Award 2016

Last week Rainer Blatt received in Singapore the Quantum Communication Award 2016 for his pioneering experiments on quantum information processing with trapped ions and photons. Artur Ekert from the National University of Singapore was the second awardee of this prize. Congratulations Rainer!
