We welcome Avan to our lab! Avan has just started his Master thesis with the magnetic levitation project. His goal: coupling the superconducting particle to a microwave cavity. This would be fantastic and the first step to quantum control of magneticlly levitated particles.
David, who was an Amanuens student in our lab, will leave us to continue his studies in Physics at ETH Zurich. We wish him all the best and thanks for all your amazing work, especially in programming!
MyFab is the Swedish research infrastructure for micro- and nanofabrication and features an article about WACQT‘s cleanroom activities. Our work on levitated superconductors is mentioned. Have a read here.
Feodor Lynen fellowships are awarded to excellent PostDoctoral candidates that are based in Germany who want to pursue a research project outside of Germany. They are awarded by the Alexander von Humboldt foundation. Witlef can now act as a host for these fellowships. If you are interested, just contact Witlef.
When you need a library of signatures of potential single photon emitters in hBN have a look here. This is recent theory work lead by C. Linderälv and P. Erhart that was just published in Phys. Rev. B 103, 115421 (2021).
Our paper on Cavity optomechanics with photonic bound states in the continuum has been published in Phys. Rev. Research. This theory proposal brings optomechanics into the regime of single photon quantum cooperativity. Thanks to the fantastic collaboration with Jamie and Philippe!
