Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics
The Department (IFA) hosts a large number of different research activities in the field of Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) physics as well as in bio-physics. The program covers classical disciplines such as spectroscopy and collisions, as well as more advanced specialties like interactions with exotic particles such as antiprotons and non-classical light. A large number of modern experimental tools, for instance lasers, ion traps, the ASTRID and ELISA heavy-ion storage rings, and a synchrotron-radiation facility are being used. Much of the research and instrumentation has over the past years been funded by several centers of the Natural Research Foundation.
Below, you find more information about the AMO-research activities and the people involved in the various projects.
