The atom-laser paper of IESL has been selected as one of three AMO highlights of 2014 by the New Journal of Physics. See also New Scientist and Atom Laser.
Front Page News: The New Scientist has published on its Front Page a very popularized article about the IESL atom-laser. We reported in the article in the New Journal of Physics about an ultra-bright atom laser based on strong coupling using RF radiation. Note … Continue reading
The atom laser paper of the IESL group will go online coming Thursday at the New Journal of Physics. A popular summary for the paper: Optical lasers have revolutionised physics. Their extreme brightness has enabled applications ranging from laser-welding of … Continue reading
We are very happy to announce that Hector Mas is joining us for a six month internship and maybe more…
Saurabh Pandey will join the MatterWaves group of Wolf von Klitzing at IESL-FORTH in October. He will do his PhD on guided matter-wave interferometry. He will be part of QTea a Marie Curie Initial Training Network. www.bec.gr
Saurabh Pandey has joined the MatterWaves group of Wolf von Klitzing at IESL-FORTH. He has come for a three month visit and might stay on for his PhD.
The position is now closed. We are seeking a keen experimentalist to join our group at IESL-FORTH on Crete (Greece) as a PhD student on the topic of “Guided Matter Wave interferometry”. The studentship is funded through the EU projects QTea and MatterWave … Continue reading
Phys. Rev. A 87 043637 (2013) N. K. Efremidis, V. Paltoglou, and W. von Klitzing http://link.aps.org/doi/10.1103/PhysRevA.87.043637 Abstract: We predict that classes of coherent matter waves can self-accelerate without the presence of an external potential. Such Bose-Einstein condensates can … Continue reading
The Editorial Board of Journal of Physics B has selected the paper “A gradient and offset compensated Ioffe–Pritchard trap for Bose–Einstein condensation experiments” from the IESL team as a Highlight of the year 2012!
