MAWI - One (1) PhD student position

Position Description

Quantum Matterwaves: Detection, creation, and manipulation

Matterwaves, generated by Bose-Einstein Condensates, are the main resource in ultra-high precision atom-quantum sensors. We demonstrated the first coherent Matterwave guide (Nature 570 205--209 (2019), which will be at the core of this PhD thesis. The successful candidate will perform experiments on matterwave optics and atomic quantum transport in these waveguides. She/He will also work on sub-atom-shotnoise detection of and germination of Bose Einstein Condensates.
