Latest Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics Stories
Researchers from Garching and Braunschweig transport frequencies with high precision over almost 2000 km - important, among other things, for geodesy
In future, optical fibers could connect all optical atomic clocks within Europe – a milestone for various users of optical frequencies in research and industry
Quantum physicists have made a leap forward in subatomic particle communication by connecting two separate labs 21-meters apart using two atoms and a photon, according to a report published in the April 12 issue of Nature.
A data memory can hardly be any smaller: researchers working with Gerhard Rempe at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching have stored quantum information in a single atom.
An international team of scientists has used ultrashort flashes of laser light to directly observe the movement of an atomâ€™s outer electrons for the first time.
An international team measures the charge radius of the hydrogen nucleus and stumbles across some mysteries of physics.
Contrary to previous assumptions, electrons are catapulted out of an atom during photoemission with a delay.
A sensitive measuring device must not be dropped - because this usually destroys the precision of the instrument.
Scientists demonstrate for the first time exotic multiparticle interactions between ultracold atoms in an artificial crystal of light.
The weird world of quantum mechanics describes the strange, often contradictory, behaviour of small inanimate objects such as atoms.
