Thomas Pohl received his PhD in Physics in 2005 from the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany. He was subsequently awarded the ITAMP Postdoctoral Fellowship 2005 by the Institute for Theoretical Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, USA. Since 2008 he has been a Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems where he headed an independent research group in the Finite Systems Department.

 

Thomas joins us as a Niels Bohr Professor for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. Within the Niels Bohr Professorship on “Many-Body Quantum Optics in Correlated Matter” his group will investigate diverse questions and phenomena at the interface of light and other quantum systems, such as cold ion assemblies, Rydberg atoms and molecules, quantum gases and fluids, or semiconductor excitons.
