ERC Consolidator grant awarded to Witlef

The ERC has awarded Witlef with a Consolidator Grant. This is great news as it allows our lab to push further the frontiers of quantum physics to more macroscopic objects. The goal of the project is to entangle multiple magnetically levitated superconducting particles – all on a chip. We will start this exciting endeavor on Jan 1st 2024. Stay tuned!

Congrats Dr Sushanth!

Sushanth graduated on Tuesday! Congrats, this is well deserved and we are very happy for you. Sushanth graduated with his results on our optomechanics experiments. All the details you can read in his PhD thesis here. Now, we wish you all the best for your future! And, we love your hat!

Congrats to Dr Martí

The first PhD student form our lab graduated on Jan 26. Congrats to Martí! This PhD is well deserved. You built up the maglev experiment from scratch: from an empty lab to a Q of 10^5 of the first magnetically levitated superconducting microparticles on a chip. This is a spectacular achievement. Also, Martí received the first self-built PhD hat from our lab. We are very proud of you and wish you all the best for your future!

Wrapping up 2022

We enjoyed our end-of-the year wrap up, discussing our scientific year 2022 and looking ahead. Let me thank you all for a wonderful year. It is a great pleasure to work together with all of you. Looking forward to an exciting 2023!
