Immanuel Bloch in Bavarian Academy

  • 05.02.2018 | Awards

    Hector Fellow Immanuel Bloch is elected member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences.

    The Plenary Assembly of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences has appointed Professor Immanuel Bloch, Chair of Experimental Physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich and Director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, an ordinary member.

    Professor Bloch’s work has opened up a new interdisciplinary research area at the interface of atomic physics, quantum optics, quantum information processing and condensed matter physics. His pioneering work on quantum simulations focuses on the microscopic interplay of many ultracold atoms trapped in a periodic potential that is created by laser beams. Theses “artificial” quantum crystals serve as models for solid state matter in order to simulate, for example, insulating, conducting, magnetic or superconducting behaviour.
